McNeese State University will offer a variety of electronic learning courses for academic credit during the 2011 summer sessions. The summer class schedule is now available. Electronic learning courses are designed for well-disciplined students who are capable of handling independent study.
Regular registration for the three summer sessions is currently underway through May 13. Classes begin June 7 for the regular summer session and the first mini-session, while classes for the second mini-session begin June 28.
College by Cassette classes offer students a convenient option of course preparation and study. A complete series of videocassette lessons are used throughout the course. They may be rented or viewed in the McNeese library. Some on-campus meeting times are required. Students should look for course listings marked section CS.
Compressed video courses offer students an opportunity to receive credit from McNeese or other state universities by attending class at one of the on-campus sites or at one of McNeese's off-campus sites in Allen, Jeff Davis, Beauregard or Vermilion parishes. Compressed video involves two-way, full motion video and audio that closely replicates a traditional face-to-face class. Students should look for course listings marked section CZ (off campus) or CV (on campus) to register for these courses. A $20 per credit hour electronic fee will be administered for all CZ classes.
Internet or Web-based courses are being offered in several departments that allow students to access class information and assignments from home or at times that might be more convenient to the student. Web classes are often used to supplement traditional classes or other distance courses. Some on-campus meeting times or designated testing sites may be required for Web hybrid (WH) classes, while Web classes (W) are strictly online classes and require no meeting times on campus. Students should refer to class listings marked section W or WH to register for these classes. A $20 per credit hour electronic fee will be administered for all Web courses.

CALL provides an opportunity for adult students with prior college credit to earn a degree in less time than a traditional curriculum.
