Noncredit / Adult Education Programs

LACCD offers students access to a variety of no cost courses that can assist them in reaching their personal and professional goals. Noncredit courses are intended to provide students with lifelong learning, college transfer and career preparation opportunities. Although students may not need or desire unit credit, noncredit often serves as a first point of entry for many underserved students as well as a transition point to credit instruction.
