The Continuing Education Division is committed to the instructional development and support of the institution. The Continuing Education program strives to meet the continuing community needs and interests. It endeavors to enhance the educational and economic advancement, personal fulfillment or enrichment, and general social effectiveness of the society it serves.
The Continuing Education program consists of any courses, or organized groupings of courses, structured to meet specific occupational or professional needs offered for a specified number of class meetings for which no institutional credit toward a diploma or degree is awarded. Courses offered in this program are specially planned, designed, and conducted for the purpose of:
1. Maintaining and/or improving professional competence;
2. Advancing vocational/occupational growth; and
3. Preparing/upgrading for career-changing demands and adjustments.
Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are awarded on the basis of 10 student contact hours equaling one Continuing Education Unit. Certificates of completion are awarded for specific educational activities which do not meet standards for CEU awards.
