FAQ

Am I a Training or an Academic student?

Academic students are taking courses for credit toward a degree, certificate, or diploma. Academic students must apply to and enroll at the college.

Training students—sometimes called Continuing Education students—can take individual courses or earn certificates and certifications. They can register directly for courses online. Training courses don't earn college credit or transfer to other institutions.
