Time-compressed courses at state-supported universities have served a variety of purposes. It has been traditional to set scheduling policies that would make summer and winter sessions self-funding. They have not been viewed, however, as potential enrollment generators. This is an opportunity that can no longer be overlooked. This paper describes one state university's efforts to enhance enrollment through year-round operation. Although Slippery Rock University faces unique constraints, much can be learned from its efforts.
