Admission Requirements

Anyone can enroll in non-credit continuing education courses. Participants generally do not need to have a certain level of prior education. These non credit courses are not designed to meet college degree requirements, but may provide needed CEUs (continuing education units) for professionals upgrading their skills or needing industry recognized certifications.

Registration & Fees

Register in person, on the phone, online, fax, or email. Registration fees vary from course to course and are listed in the current online schedule. If a student will not be able to attend a course, requests for refunds or transfers of 100% of payment should be made at least five (5) business days prior to the first class meeting.
