Curriculum (For-Credit) Courses   |   Continuing Education (Non-Credit) Courses


Curriculum (For-Credit) Courses - Curriculum (For-Credit) courses are college-credit courses that result in the awarding of college credit upon satisfactory completion. College credit courses apply toward degree, diploma, and certificate programs. In addition, many Curriculum courses qualify for transfer college credit to senior institutions as well as other colleges.

Continuing Education (Non-Credit) Courses - Continuing Education courses are non-credit courses for those who need to train, retrain, and update themselves in a vocational or professional area, for those who desire instruction enabling them to grow in basic knowledge, improve in home and community life, and develop or improve leisure time activities, and for those individuals whose education stopped short of high school.
