Non-credit courses provide the opportunity for lifelong learning for all members of the community. Each semester classes in a variety of subjects and skills are offered in an informal and noncompetitive environment where an interest in learning is the primary consideration. Admission requirements, entrance examinations, and application fees are not required for enrollment. Courses and special programs are designed for adults and children. Certificates of achievement are given for students who have successfully completed skills-related classes.
Fees for non-credit courses will vary according to the length of the course, use of consumable materials, and use of special equipment. The department strives to keep these costs within reach of all those who may benefit from the learning experience. Fees are payable in full at the time of registration.
Ohio residents 60 or older may enroll tuition-free on a space-available basis. Tuition is waived but senior citizens will be charged for applicable lab/accreditation fees and any related instructional materials.
