Credit Curriculum

Credit Instruction includes review and approval of programs and courses (degree and certificates) to be offered at California Community Colleges across the state. These programs and courses provide students with a pathway to a transfer baccalaureate institution to complete their educational goals, and the knowledge and skill for occupational preparation.


Noncredit Curriculum

Noncredit instruction provides students with access to a variety of courses at no cost to assist them in reaching their personal, academic and professional goals.
