Adult Education/Noncredit

Golden West College’s noncredit courses are designed for students who wish to advance their educational and career goals. Noncredit courses are offered on-campus, off-campus, and online. They provide students with lifelong learning, college transfer, and career preparation opportunities. All noncredit courses are FREE with no proof of residency needed. The courses are highly accessible and repeatable with no prerequisite courses. Most importantly, the courses serve as a critical “open access” entry point for students of diverse backgrounds and those seeking self-improvement, increased literacy, and job skills.
