UC tests ways to support year-round study

http://universityofcalifornia.edu/news/uc-tests-new-ways-funding-summer-study

Some excerpt below :


Three UC campuses – Berkeley, Irvine and San Diego – this coming summer will pilot programs that offset student costs for summer classes to see whether it entices more to enroll.

UC Berkeley
The campus is looking to change that with a new low-cost loan program. Modeled on the structure of the federally-managed Perkins Loan, qualified students will be able to borrow funds for summer study at a 5 percent interest rate, with repayment and interest deferred until they graduate and enter the job market.

The university will fund the program with money from endowments.

UCSD
“I have 11,000 students who move in within the same three days in June,” he said. “It takes 500 people working three straight days to clean up after them.” To convert dorms for outside use, ”I’ve got a small army putting in linens, setting blankets, bringing in beds, bringing in TVs. It’s a huge organizational effort. But what if we could convince more of the students to stay?”
...
Going forward, Cunningham sees opportunities for connecting students not only to housing but also to summer jobs. His office is working with career services to connect summer session students with temporary positions from staffing conference operations and summer camps to filling in on academic and administrative posts that are vacant for the summer.

“Imagine if we make it easy for students to work, to live here over the summer, to study and to do it affordably,” Cunningham said. “Instead of the benefits of leaving for the summer, we want to get students thinking about the benefits of staying.”

Irvine: Buy two classes, get the rest free

UC Irvine has instituted a fee cap during summer that enables students who take eight units – typically two classes – to take up to 12 additional units (three courses) at no additional cost. Students can take an entire quarter’s worth of courses for $2,168, a significant discount from academic-year tuition.
