For Immediate Release
University Park, IL, April 2, 2010 – Vacation Education at Governors State University provides a unique opportunity for current GSU students, college students home for the summer, and those wishing to learn more and add to their qualifications. The courses offered during this special summer program vary in subject and content from trauma and addictions to the Illinois Writing Project and from the history of rock and roll to healthcare and politics. In other words, there is a course for everyone.
Students do not need to be previously enrolled in Governors State University. These courses can be taken on a non-degree seeking basis. Prerequisites are dependent on the course.
Vacation Education courses run from June 1 through July 15.
All four colleges of GSU — Arts and Sciences, Health and Human Services, Business and Public Administration, and Education — have scheduled courses during Vacation Education. Between one and three credit hours are offered per course.
To enroll in Vacation Education, students already enrolled at other institutions must be in good academic standing at their respective academic institutions. Application, submission of the $25 application fee, and registration for specific courses may be completed simultaneously. Unless proof or prerequisite is needed, transcripts are not required. For non-degree seeking students, enrollment is accepted up to the first day of class.
Students who are currently suspended from GSU and/or who have an unpaid balance on their tuition will not be allowed to enroll. Students are responsible for checking with their own school advisor concerning the transfer eligibility of credit hours.
Governors State University is located at 1 University Parkway, University Park, Illinois. For more information, visit www.govst.edu/vacationeducation or call (708) 534-4567.
