Continuing, Noncredit and Community Education

Citrus College Continuing Education offers lifelong personal and professional development opportunities to members of the community. Classes are designed to sharpen professional skills or help students learn new activities they can enjoy in their leisure time. Continuing education classes provide opportunities for learning that enrich the lives of individuals and improve the quality of living in our community.

Noncredit education supplements students’ continued growth and job skills development through classes that include basic skills, career development, health and fitness, vocational preparation and job retraining. Enrollment in noncredit classes is tuition free and continues throughout the school year. See Non-Credit for list of all available courses. All noncredit classes offered are subject to budget and enrollment.

Potential Citrus College students who are undecided about college may begin or continue their college experience with noncredit classes. Counseling services are available from the Counseling and Advisement Department. To schedule an appointment with a noncredit counselor, call (626) 852-6445.

Noncredit education provides English as a Second Language (ESL) classes in the traditional classroom format for limited English speaking students.

Visit the Continuing Education department in the Lifelong Learning Center or call (626) 852-8022 for more information.

Citrus College Community Education offers lifelong personal and professional development learning opportunities to members of the community.

Customized training is also available for businesses and organizations that have staff development needs.

Community Education classes, activities and events are available on days and at times that meet the needs of today’s active adults. Class lengths vary from a few hours to several meeting dates.

Community Education classes are supported by fees collected from course participants. Class schedules, published three times per year, are mailed to Citrus Community College District residents and can be accessed online.

Registering for Fee-Based Community Education Classes

Members of the community who are interested in taking fee-based community education courses must pre-register prior to taking a class. Pre-registration for Community Education classes is mandatory. It secures a student’s space in a class, determines if a class will be held or cancelled, and allows students to be notified if a class is cancelled. All classes are subject to change at the discretion of the Community Education Department.
