Community Education Program
The Community Education Program meets various academic, continuing education and lifelong learning needs of West Contra Costa County residents by providing convenient and affordable educational opportunities in three different formats:
Fee-based classes: Fee-based classes are not state-funded and are supported solely by class enrollment fees. Enrollment costs are determined based on length of class, instructor’s salary, administrative and operating costs, course materials, minimum enrollment and possible facility rental factors. These classes do NOT offer college credit toward an academic degree or transfer program.
Credit courses (Off Campus): Receive the same quality education that is provided on our main campus and earn college credit at local high schools and at the El Cerrito and Hercules Centers. (None currently available).
Non-credit courses (On/Off Campus): Perfect for individuals who love the intellectual Stimulation of the classroom, but who do not want or need the stress of earning units through a grading system. Classes are open-entry, open-exit which means individuals may start attending a class at any time. These classes are tuition free! (None currently available).
You may register for classes via mail, in person, or online via the WebAdvisor Community Education Menu. Please call (510) 215-3804 for more information.
For course offerings in central and southern Contra Costa County, please see the Community Education site for Diablo Valley College.
