Credit vs. Noncredit Courses

Credit courses are for students who wish to earn credit toward an academic degree, such as an associate degree, diploma or certificate. At the end of the credit course, students earn a grade and a specific number of academic credits to be applied to their college transcript. To take credit courses, students must be admitted to the college. Credit courses are offered for Fall, Spring and Summer semesters. Federal and state financial aid can be used to pay for credit courses.

Noncredit courses are professional development and personal interest courses that do not award academic credit but are eligible for Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Students do not have to be admitted to the college to take noncredit courses. Noncredit courses are offered throughout the year. Federal financial aid cannot be used to pay for noncredit courses.
