Educational Programs / Career Training

Academic Credit Programs

Community colleges offer academic programs leading to an associate degree, certificate, or letter of recognition. Students may enter a program designed for transfer to a four-year institution or one that prepares for immediate entry to, or advancement in, a career.

Continuing Education Programs

Through continuing education programs, Maryland community colleges promote lifelong learning and provide a source for intellectual, cultural and physical vitality in the community. Noncredit continuing education courses, offered in a variety of formats responsive to community needs, allow Maryland students to seek career training, boost basic skills and/or enrich their lives through pursuit of a variety of interests.

Students may enroll in some credit courses as noncredit attendees and may receive Continuing Education Units (CEUs), a nationally recognized measure of skills or work-related training.
