In an effort to help students complete their degrees quicker, the new Summer 2010 online courses earned more than $1.5 million in tuition. According to numbers supplied by the College of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Office, 29 new courses were added during the Summer 2010 session, including general education and upper division courses. Arts and Sciences Dean Mark Kornbluh, who led the effort for these added online classes, brought the idea from a similar one he was involved with while at Michigan State University. Kornbluh said the goal was to help students complete their degrees quicker, while still allowing out-of-state students or students wanting to return home for the summer to complete required hours or to retake a course. He said almost 5,000 credit hours were completed.
