Online Noncredit Courses

Our instructor-facilitated online courses are informative, fun, convenient, and highly interactive. All courses run for six weeks (with a two-week grace period at the end). Courses are project-oriented and include lessons, quizzes, hands-on assignments, discussion areas, supplementary links, and more. You can complete any of these courses entirely from your home or office and at any time of the day or night.

The Online Instruction Center is open 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, this allows you to complete any of these courses entirely from your home or office and at any time of the day or night.

All courses require Internet access, e-mail and a web browser. Some courses may have additional requirements. Please visit our Online Instruction Center for more information.

A new section of every course will begin on:

2017: 7/12, 8/16, 9/13, 10/18, 11/8, 12/13

Note: Students can register in a particular course up to five (5) days after a course’s start date. For example, if the class start date is 5/18, then a student can register for a course any time prior to 5/18, but no later than 5/23. If the class start date is more than five days past due, it is recommended that a student register in the following month’s course start date.
