Basic Studies

Basic studies programs provide for the employment and pre-college educational needs of adults 19 years or older regardless of previous educational background or ability. Courses are individualized to better serve the special needs of each student. All courses are offered on a continuous enrollment basis.

All course offerings are subject to change. The college cannot guarantee class offerings, designated times or specific instructors - as funding levels and student interest may affect whether or not an offering is available.
