Courses or certificate programs can be taken online, in a classroom or a combination.
You can take up to 24 semester hours of undergraduate college credit or 9 credit hours for graduate level courses as a non-degree seeking student.
Admission process is simple and convenient in Rocket Hall. College transcripts are not required.
