Continuing Education

Corporate and Continuing Education provides opportunities for individuals, businesses and organizations to pursue their personal, professional and corporate training goals.




Students complete lower-level coursework during the first two years at a lower cost, because community college tuition is generally less expensive. Upon transferring they complete upper level coursework in their chosen field.
