Do I need to purchase a textbook for my class(es)?
No. On the first day of school, teachers will pass out textbooks, if the class requires one. The student will fill out a card attesting to the condition of the book, and agreeing to return it in like condition. If the book is damaged or lost, the cost of replacing the book is the student's responsibility.

Is there financial aid available?
There are a limited number of partial scholarships available (up to 75%, excluding any materials fees). Scholarships are based upon proof of financial need. Total taxable income must not exceed $35,000- even if you are enrolling more than one child.  Applications must be postmarked by Friday, May 30th 2014. The application holds your child's spot in his/her class/es (do not send payment until scholarship awards have been decided). Click here to download the application. The director will take all completed applications into consideration and award 25%, 50% or 75% partial scholarships soon after the June 2nd deadline. You will be notified of the decision and will be given until June 11th to make the balance due payment. After this date, your child will be unenrolled.
 
How do I know which level of math or reading is right for my child?
Courses in the mathematics and language arts sections are listed in order of difficulty. Teachers give a pre-test to students on the first day of the class and will make level changes as needed. Parents will be called if a change is necessary or recommended.
Back to questions
 
What if my child needs to be absent for an entire week?
Daily attendance is required for all Academic and Elective classes. If a student were to miss an entire week, he/she would not be able to receive the required credits for the class, or keep up with the progress. In Enrichment classes, an entire week’s absence is possible although not recommended. Please make note of any planned absences on your registration form. Make-up work may be assigned by the teacher.
Back to questions
 
What if my child wants to take only one Enrichment class or one semester of an Academic class?
You may enroll your child in only one Enrichment course, although there is no fee reduction to only take one course. If your child needs only to attend one semester of an Academic class, the arrangement is possible. First semester is June 23- July 9, 2014 and second semester is July 10- 25, 2014. Your child only needs to attend the days during the semester for which he/she has signed up. There is no fee reduction to only take one semester, or one Enrichment or Elective course.

What if my child is unhappy and wants to change a class?
We will be happy to make a change if there is room in another class before the program begins. Please understand that our program is popular and many classes close early, so in order for your child to get the class he/she wants, be sure to enroll as early as possible. If you request the change after Friday, June 6th, there will be a $25 fee assessed.

What if my child is a reluctant participant in summer learning?
Many of our classes are very popular with even reluctant learners. It sometimes helps if the parent chooses one class and the student chooses another. We do not allow one child to compromise the learning of another. If your child is not participating properly in class, you will receive a phone call from the teacher, and possibly an administrator.
Back to questions
 
How will I know my child’s progress?
Each of the SAEP teachers has a web-based grade program. Both you and your student will receive a username and password. You can access this program at any point during the five-week program and for three weeks after. If you have questions or concerns regarding the grade or attendance of your child, you can email the teacher directly. Also, some of the classes have presentations to which you will be invited, such as art, dance and drama. You may also call the office and make arrangements for a classroom visitation.

Will my child’s school receive a transcript?
Transcripts can be requested at the end of the program.

What if my child needs tutoring in the Academic classes?
As long as prior notice is given to the teacher, we provide free tutoring by qualified teaching assistants for forty-five minutes after class.
Back to questions
 
How will my young child navigate a college campus?
Before school begins, we will host an Orientation. Parents are encouraged to come with their student/s to meet the Administration and take a campus tour with a teacher's assistant. On the first day of instruction, we request all parents to park in Lot B6 and walk their child/ren to Jacaranda Walk (see map) where he/she will meet his/her teacher. The first period teacher will bring the students back here to meet with their second period teacher. T.A.s are available to walk students to their second period class for as long as they wish. On the first day only, after second period, the teacher will walk the class back to Jacaranda Walk where you can meet your student.
Back to questions
 
Where may I park or drop-off and pick-up my child?
Pick-up on the first day will be in Lots B6, because all students will meet their 1st period teachers on the Jacaranda Walk. You may purchase a program pass (for a one-time fee of $4.98) here:https://www.thepermitstore.com/csun/event/ Depending upon which building your child is in, he/she will be given a list of appropriate parking lots for subsequent days. Drop-off and pick-up is to take place in parking lots only. We recommend that you stay with your car when you drop-off or pick-up your child. We have “crossing guards” at each parking lot to assist your child across the street. If you leave your car unattended or if you drop-off or pick-up your child in the street, you may receive a ticket from the campus police. For the safety of your child, please follow the instructions of the “crossing guards.”

Back to questions
 
Do I need to turn in proof that my child has met the prerequisite for a course?
No. On the first day of class, the teacher will give a pre-test to each student to make sure that every student is enrolled in the correct level of the sequence. If the child tests higher/lower, adjustments will be made after contacting the parent.
Back to questions
 
When does registration end?
Regular registration's last day will be Friday, June 6th, 2014. On Saturday, June 7th, 2014, there will be a fee of $25 assessed (for all unpaid registrations or newly registered students) . We can take registrations all the way up until Monday, June 23rd, 2014, if space is available.
