Generally, there are no entrance requirements in continuing education courses, except as indicated in certain professional program areas. Such requirements and prerequisites are specified in course descriptions. Formal admission to the college is not currently required.
Students should register early to ensure a place in the class. All registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Students may register in any of the following ways:
" By Mail To register by mail, please enclose payment by check or money order and include a letter with the following information: name, mailing address, city, state, zip, home phone, work phone, social security number, birth date, and the name of the course you'd like to take. " In Person To register in person, come to the Continuing Education office in the Administration Building from 8 AM - 6 PM Monday through Thursday, or 8 AM - 12 Noon on Friday. By Phone Students may register by phone with Visa, Mastercard, or Discover. Social Security number is necessary to complete registration. Registration is not complete until tuition/fees have been received; payment is required prior to the start of class. Proof of Texas residency may be required in special cases.
Concurrent Enrollment in Credit Classes
Students may enroll in a credit course for no credit through Continuing Education on a space-available basis with instructor permission. Tuition and fees will be assessed at the same rate as for a credit course.
Adults 60 years of age and older:
Tuition will be waived for adults 60 and over who reside within the College district and who enroll in a semester-length credit course for no credit. Although tuition will be waived, students pay fees and provide necessary supplies.
Record Of Achievement (Transcript)
Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are awarded upon completion of a substantive in-service or occupational training experience received through a continuing education course. A nationally recognized measure, a CEU is defined as "ten contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction." The CEU should not be interpreted as a substitute for college credit.
Transcripts must be requested in writing from the Continuing Education Department. There is no charge.
Articulation With Credit Programs
The College does not award academic credit for work taken on a non-credit basis without appropriate documentation that the non-credit coursework is equivalent to a designated credit experience. Students must demonstrate proficiency in course competencies to the satisfaction of a full-time, appropriately credentialed faculty member. A knowledge and/or skills exam may be required. Documentation will be further reviewed by the Vice President for Instructional Services, who will determine whether the non-credit work should be approved for credit.
Postponed or Cancelled Classes
Courses listed in this schedule may be postponed or cancelled without notification due to insufficient enrollment, budget constraints, inclement weather, or other program changes. In such situations, every effort will be made to contact all students enrolled. A full refund will be processed unless the student asks to be transferred to another continuing education course or section.
