    Officials at San Jose State University say federal stimulus money will allow the university to offer additional classes and break up some larger classes into smaller ones.

    The university says it will be receiving $3.1 million in one-time stimulus funds. 

    CSU Chancellor Charles Reed says the extra money should help students make faster progress in attaining degrees at San Jose State. The federal money will go to adding classes required for graduation, but are not currently accepting new students because of overcrowding.    

    The federal funding comes after reductions in state funding forced the university to cut enrollment by 3,000 spots for the coming fall semester.
