Many courses offered may be counted toward lower and upper division GE requirements. Summer Session and Winter Intersession courses offer SSU continuing students units in residence, the same as courses taken during the academic terms. Some of the resident courses fulfill General Education (GE) requirements. Look for the GE symbol in the course description.

During both Summer and Winter Intersession SSU opens its door to high school students, all college students, and working professionals. We invite you to come and study with us; no formal admission required.
