Noncredit Online Learning


The Workforce Development and Continuing Education online delivery allows you to learn any place at any time! We use the technology of the Internet to make it possible for you to connect to courses even though you are not in the same location as your instructor. Online courses can save you the time and expense of driving to campus and give you flexibility in time, location, and pace of study.


You can take a noncredit course for personal or professional development, update your skills, discover a new talent, or chart a career path at your convenience using your computer. If you have a difficult time attending classes because your schedule is full or changes constantly, consider enrolling in one of our online courses. All of these courses allow you to study, complete assignments, and communicate with your instructor and fellow classmates from the convenience of your computer:  at home, your office, or school.


All you need is an e-mail address, Internet access, and a Web browser. The computer becomes the classroom. Students can use their own computer at home or work or use a computer at one of the college's computer labs to conduct course communications. Please note most online courses are not self-paced; you will be required to complete course work during specific times.
