High school students in San Diego can earn free credits through UCSD Extension that could help them boost their college applications, or find a higher paying job.

San Diego City Libraries and UCSD Extension announced a partnership to host free courses in subjects like web development and programming. Space is limited, and registration for the fall is now being accepted. The classes will be a the Valencia Park/Malcolm X Library, and on the UC San Diego Extension campus in University City.

"These are classes that you would go to UCSD and pay thousands of dollars for that you can do in the public library for free," said Misty Jones, San Diego's library director.  

Additionally, the city also announced Wednesday that its Library NExT program is expanding to 15 libraries, from the current 16. These are free workshops for middle and high school students that teach robotics, circuits, and 3D modeling. Registration is available here
