欢迎来到 Office of 继续教育 and 外部程序. 的 Office was formed to provide support for the development, implementation and management of both non-credit academic 程序, the oversight of students who wish to enroll in classes with our entering degree 程序s and off-campus academic activities. We work to continue growing as a unit which provides unique services for our university community. This website serves as a chronicler of our services, 程序s and progress. We want to make sure that everyone has access to the work that we are doing. We invite you to return to this website from time to time to learn more about our office and to continue to be a part of our growing community. This office will develop opportunities for personal and professional activities designed to advance both an individual's personal and career goals as well as the expansion of 亚美体育 beyond the physical boundaries of our home campus.
Some of the activities 继续教育 and External Program is responsible for are:
Management of the Non-Degree enrollment process

We process the non-degree application, work with you on the initial course enrollment and make ensure that you have the tools you will need to reach your educational and professional goals.
Management of the BSU/PGCPS Dual Enrollment 程序
亚美体育 and the Prince Georges County Public School (PGCPS) system have an agreement to allow PGCPS students in their junior and senior years to enroll in college courses. Some of the courses available to students in the 程序 can serve to satisfy their high school graduation requirements. PGCPS will pay for the tuition of the students in the 程序 with the associated fees being the responsibility of the familty. Students who are in the Free and Reduced Meals (FARM) 程序 will also have their fees and tuition paid for by PGCPS.
Manage the expansion of 亚美体育 to off-campus locations
This office works closely with academic departments that wish to offer their 程序s in off-campus locations. We work with the departments in identifying the sites for offering 程序s, coordinate the logistics for facilities and assist in identifying the targeted pool of potential student. Once the off-campus 程序 has become established the Office coordinates the site logistics and requirements.
Manage both the 冬天 term and the Summer School sessions
This office works with the academic departments to develop and post the course schedule for both terms. We publicize the course offerings and work with the administration and faculty to insure a smooth and peaceful winter and summer.
Manage the development of non-credit courses and 程序s
的 office will lead the university towards the development of a continuing education curriculum that can provide non-credit courses and 程序s to assist in the professional develop needs of our extended community.
Manage the university's experiential 程序
的 投资组合 程序 offers students the opportunity to utilize their prior work experiences to satisfy the requirements of coursework. 的 程序 assists in accelerated time to degree by allowing students the option of not sitting through a class if they can document the manner in which their work experiences satisfy the objectives and outcomes of the class.
Manage the university’s service to veterans and military personnel
的 军事资源中心 (MRC), 亚美体育APP下载的亚美体育中心, finds its home in the 继续教育 Office. 的 MRC located in Suite 1126 of the Thurgood Marshall 图书馆, is a site for students who have served or are currently serving in the military to locate answers and solutions to issues, concerns and problems or a location to network and fellowship with colleagues and peers. 的 MRC serves as the point of contact for assistance in resolving issues and concerns associated with matriculating at BSU.
