CHARLESTON, Ill. (AP) - Eastern Illinois University says it is adding new online classes for students transferring to the Charleston school.

Eastern Illinois officials announced Monday the classes in psychology, recreation administration and family and consumer sciences are geared in particular to students who will transfer from community colleges. The classes are intended to make it easier for students to attend Eastern Illinois.

Rita Pearson is the director of transfer relations at the school. She said almost 40 percent of EIU’s students are transfers. She noted many of them have families and full-time jobs and will benefit from anything that can make it easier for them to be students.

Pearson said most students prefer to be in classrooms. But she said sometimes that just isn’t possible.
