Registration & Fees
Please note that Student ID numbers are required to purchase books at the College (Book) Store. These numbers are given to you when you register at the Continuing Education window for class.
Admission to all publicly offered continuing education programs is open to adults 18 years of age and older on a first-come, space-available basis unless special admission requirements must be met. Individuals ages 16 and 17 can be served if a minor applicant form is completed prior to the class start date. However, the student must meet any pre-requisite or admission requirements. Certain classes require a background check, placement tests, and a high school diploma or GED. All classes require pre-payment (cash, check, Master Card, American Express, Discover, or Visa).

Fee amounts are available in the Division of Continuing Education office. This does not apply to fire, rescue, or law enforcement training courses taken by fire, rescue, or law enforcement personnel. Students may repeat occupational extension courses more than once if the repetitions are required for certification, licensure, or re-certification.
