The Division of Continuing Education offers a variety of non-credit courses to meet your personal and professional learning needs. Offerings include professional and business development and certification courses, leisure/recreational courses, adult basic education courses, and workforce training courses. Through our non-credit course offerings, you can prepare for certification and licensure exams and earn industry-recognized credentials in a variety of fields. We even provide free assistance to potential or existing small business owners and entrepreneurs.
To be eligible to enroll in Continuing Education courses, students must be 18 years of age, or secure their principal’s permission if they are 16 or 17 years of age and enrolled in high school. Children, and others not registered in a class, are not allowed to attend.
Out-of-state students seeking to enroll in a program or course leading to professional licensure or certification should contact the Continuing Education office to discuss enrollment and professional licensure options available. Students may view the Professional Licensure information page to learn more.
Please note that not all courses in each category are offered every semester. Check the Continuing Education Schedule for current and upcoming offerings.
