Corporate and Continuing Education

Corporate and Continuing Education helps individuals and employers meet ongoing learning and workforce development needs through courses and programs on campuses, in the community, at workplaces and online. Continuing education courses are non-credit, meaning they do not earn a degree or college academic credit. Many courses, however, earn skill and knowledge-based certificates and certifications through industry-based content for professional and trade careers. In-person courses are offered on flexible schedules, including nights and weekends.
