What is Lifelong Learning?
How is it different from college?
Lifelong Learning is the non-credit division of NCTC. Our mission
is to help students gain skills needed in the workforce, and to enrich their
lives through new experiences. Learning is a constant pursuit - there's no such
thing as "having learned enough." Unlike college classes taken for
credit, our classes tend to be shorter, less formal, and user-friendly. Students receive Continuing Education Units (C.E.U.) instead of college credits. Please note that C.E.U.s are not transferable to other colleges. However, they are respected and used in the workforce.
