Whether you choose to transfer to a four-year university, decide to enter the workforce, or earn a degree or certificate, we will provide you the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills to be successful in today’s technology-driven global economy. 

SUMMER AND FALL ENROLLMENT UPDATES

SUMMER 2020 registration is open. 

  • Courses are all online and sessions start as early as May 18, 2020
  • The Distance Education fee was waived. It will save you $42 per class this Summer. While the Distance Education fee is important because it supports the technology needed to provide instruction, we decided that waiving the fee was an important step to help reduce some of your costs during this unprecedented time. If you have already registered and paid for Summer courses, we are issuing a refund for the associated Distance Education fee. For all other students who plan to register, the system has been updated and will not charge this fee.
  • Multiple start dates are available. 

FALL 2020 registration is open.

  • Courses begin August 24.
  • We are outlining steps to re-open campuses this Fall and courses within the Fall schedule will be delivered as listed (i.e. online classes will be delivered online and classes listed as in-person will be delivered face to face). However, we know that the current situation continues to evolve and as a result, we may need to alter the delivery model for courses to ensure your safety.
  • Multiple start dates are available.
