What Are The Different Course Types?

​​College Credit Courses

College credit courses apply toward getting your college degree and many professional certificates. Credit courses give you the option of transferring credit to another college or university to finish a degree. Core Curriculum courses are guaranteed to transfer to any public Texas college or university. Or you can earn an associate degree or credit certificate and get straight to work.

Continuing Education (Noncredit) Courses

In addition to college credit classes, you can take courses to improve your personal or workforce skills. These continuing education (CE) courses do not offer college credit and do not count toward a full degree, but they may apply toward industry credentials, workplace certificates or your GED. You can also take CE classes just for fun, with options ranging from art to yoga.

Because CE courses do not offer college credit, they are also referred to as noncredit courses.
