<strong>Need an extra unit to graduate? Give us two days.</strong><br /><br />
These courses are designed to allow SDSU undergraduate students to earn extra units for graduation while at the same time learning about the latest trends and hot topics in a variety of areas. Courses are currently offered in political science and public administration. Each course consists of only two class meetings; typically a Friday/Saturday combination. Community members are also welcome to enroll.
<strong>Financial Aid</strong><br />
Courses may be eligible for financial aid if the student is using the units within their major to complete their degree. Please contact the <a href="http://www.sdsu.edu/financialaid" target="_blank">Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships</a> for more information.<br /><br />
Courses meet on the SDSU campus. Classroom numbers are listed with each course.<br /><br />
Courses typically meet on a Friday evening and all day on Saturday of the following week. Specific start and end times vary. These courses are usually offered during the fall and spring terms, though occasionally there may be summer offerings. Additional courses may be added throughout the semester; check back for updates.<br /><br />
<strong>Course Level</strong><br />
These are undergraduate, upper-division courses. Each course is one unit.<br /><br />
Grading is on a Credit/No Credit basis. No letter grades will be assigned. Students must attend all meetings and complete all assignments to receive credit.<br /><br />
You may register online, by phone, by mail, or in person at the <a href="/Pages/Engine.aspx?id=64#office">College of Extended Studies Registration Office</a> in the Gateway Center, facing Hardy Avenue. Be sure to register early; courses may be cancelled if there are not enough students enrolled.<br /><br />
<strong>Transferring Credit</strong><br />
Students from other universities should first check with their school to make sure these units will transfer. Approval is up to the receiving institution.
This course will provide students with an understanding of the nature and extent of the youth gang problem in the United States, and the law enforcement, social services, and community-based responses to it.
