Credit vs. Non-Credit Courses

Choosing How & Why You Learn

New students often have questions about unfamiliar terms in program descriptions. One common example: “Non-credit” might sound like the course doesn’t count — but that’s not what it means.

Both credit and non-credit courses teach you things that count for your future:

  • Credit = counts toward a degree for your future career
  • Non-credit = counts toward a new skill for a very-soon career

Whether you’re working towards a degree or need specific skills to land a better job, we’ll help you start your journey in the right place.
