Community Education Information

The Community Education program complements the academic curriculum by offering short-term, fee-based classes that are not for college credit.

Community Education classes for children and adults are developed and offered in response to community need as identified by feedback from participants, enrollment history, popularity of similar programs offered elsewhere, and current trends.

The program is self-supporting, receives no funds from Saddleback College or the State of California, and is separate from the academic offerings of the College.

Students who want to pursue a personal goal or educational degree for credit should consult the current Saddleback College credit course offerings at www.saddleback.edu.
