Business & Workforce Development Division Noncredit Courses

Are you familiar with noncredit courses? If not, you’re missing out on an excellent opportunity to get great education for free! 

California's community colleges offer noncredit courses to students at no cost. The noncredit courses fall under the following categories: 

  • English as a Second Language (ESL) 

  • Elementary and Secondary Basic Skills 

  • Short-term Vocational 

  • Workforce Preparation  

At San Jose City College, we offer a variety of noncredit courses, including highly successful, short-term vocational courses such as our Medical Assisting MA 500A, 500B, and 501.

As we grow our career education course offerings - for example, our new CIS 500: Troubleshooting & Repairing Smartphones course - we are delighted to support our students in making the transition from noncredit, to credit, to employment!

For a list of all noncredit classes being offered during the Fall 2020 semester, please visit this schedule link.
