Continuing Education classes do not require an application and begin throughout the semester, with most of the skills and technical courses starting in August and September.

The 16-week curriculum/college credit semester and first eight-week session begin on August 15. The second eight-week session begins on October 12. Students can take a mix of full-semester classes alongside eight-week sessions.
