ACCESS Program

Through the ACCESS program, participants can take undergraduate credit courses on a noncredit basis.  People in business and the professions may enroll in courses to expand their skills and knowledge without formally being admitted to the University for a degree program.   ACCESS enrollment is on a space-available basis only and students must meet course prerequisites. Completed work is recognized, though not graded, and Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are awarded, provided the student has attended 70 percent of the class sessions.  An ACCESS student will not be able to take credit by examination after taking a course for noncredit.  Cost for ACCESS enrollment is 70 percent of the current tuition fee.
