California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
As part of its fee-supported extension education program, the California State University (CSU) authorizes students to enroll in continuing education course by attending "regular" campus courses, for which they pay continuing education fees, with instructor consent and based on space availability. This "concurrent enrollment" program began in the 1960s in response to legislative concern about unused classroom space. In light of recent state budget decisions, an advisory committee was appointed to examine the sources and uses of funds from the program. The committee's research, deliberations, and recommendations are reported here. The primary recommendation is that the CSU reimburse the state 22.4% of the gross revenues generated by the program each year. Appended materials, which comprise the bulk of the document, include memoranda from the CSU chancellor and executive vice chancellor, statistical tables containing data on program enrollment and finances, and related correspondence.
