The School of Continuing Education & Professional Development’s mission is to make the College more accessible to the public and to meet community needs not served by traditional College programs. We offer noncredit courses for individuals who want to enrich their cultural experiences or improve their professional or occupational skills. No record of previous education is necessary and there are no homework assignments, attendance requirements or grades for most classes.
