Goodwell, OK -- Oklahoma Panhandle State University has expanded its for-credit course schedule this fall in the Guymon Classroom located at 5th and Roosevelt. Dr. Wayne Manning, Vice President for Academic Affairs, announced the addition of three lower level courses as well as the addition of a series of English as a Second Language (ESL) classes.

The lower level classes offer a perfect opportunity for working adults who wish to begin a college career as well as for concurrently enrolled high school students. The classes are scheduled consecutively so that students may choose to take one, two, or all three. Each meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from August 16 through December 15. College Algebra is scheduled from 4-5:15 p.m., Freshman English from 5:30-6:45 p.m., and Introduction to Computer Information Systems from 7-8:15 p.m.

Remember, Oklahoma high school seniors may take up to 6 hours of college credit during the fall and spring semesters and the tuition will be waived according to standards set by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. Juniors may earn 3 hour credit classes each semester, and are not eligible for the tuition waiver.

Teachers, do you have the desire to add an ESL endorsement to your teaching certificate? Four classes designed to prepare you for taking the ESL certification examination will be offered in the Guymon Classroom beginning August 16. The following schedule is designed so participants may take one or all four. Students earn three hours of credit for each course.
