Enrollment for Continuing Education Programs

Through its continuing education program, Florida Community College offers a wide variety of continuing workforce education and recreation courses. These courses are offered throughout the community college district wherever the need exists and adequate facilities are available. Courses are taught in public schools, industrial plants, commercial office buildings, on all the campuses and centers of the College, and other suitable locations. The length and frequency of meetings for classes differ and are determined by the type and objectives of each course.

The primary purpose of these courses is to provide individuals with the training needed to upgrade or broaden their present skills and enhance their occupational opportunities. This training also provides the business and industrial community with trained personnel.

The College maintains close liaison with outside agencies to facilitate the educational and training needs of the community. These groups include: program advisory committees, professional and civic organizations, governmental agencies, business and industry as well as various other groups.

A high school diploma is not required for enrollment in most continuing workforce education courses, but students must be at least 16 years old.

New participants in the College’s continuing education programs must submit a membership application and the $15 records origination fee.

Non–resident aliens may enroll in continuing workforce education courses; however, the College will not issue immigration papers based on this enrollment. Non–resident aliens must pay out–of–state tuition for all classes except self–supporting classes.
