2008-12-17 18:08:51 What exactly is this "extension"? I don't get it. The website was confusing, and the registrar-help (which is horrible) simply referred to it as the extension. Is it in greater Sacramento like the website says? —ThanhVu
2008-12-17 18:20:19 UC Davis Extension focuses on continuing and professional development courses. The courses are typically offered as single classes or they can be taken as a program to receive a certificate in a particular discipline. As their site indicates, classes include such topics as graphic design, project management, brewing and business management. The courses are offered via online or in a classroom setting or in a combination of both. Classes are offered in Sacramento where UCD Extension has classroom facilities. In the distant learning online courses I have taken in Project Management I have had fellow students from around the United Stats as well as from other countries. I would say the extension means extending your education beyond your BA/MA to secure additional training for a specific purpose. —loneshark
2010-11-10 12:55:50 I've received test proctoring services from the UCD-ext for over the last year. Because I am distance learning student, I expect the service to be flexible; often requiring me to make last minute, make-shift changes. Each time I need to reschedule something, or if I even inquire about changing my appointment date/times, I get some of the rudest treatment ever. My exams get scheduled for periods of 2-3 hours, and I tell them I will only be in for the last hour of the exam because that's all the time I need. They tell me that it's fine when I do that, but then they give me so much attitude for it the next time I do so. It really drives me nuts. They told me today to go and seek a new test proctor. If there were any near me, I would have done that a long time ago. Now I guess I'm forced to find a new one because I'm practically being refused service beyond today. I was told that I'm causing them to lose recurrent customers, which makes no sense because I've been a recurrent customer for them for the last year and a half. Paying $20 with each exam I take. I bring them a decent amount of money by taking my exams here, but if this is the treatment I get for it. Forget it! —ThUn
