Community Education (Fee-Based Classes)
Frequently Asked Questions
What are Community Education Classes?
Community Education classes are for the most part short-term and not-for-credit classes open to youth and adults. These include career and professional development programs, financial planning seminars and workshops, foreign language instruction, CPR and First Aid classes, sports and fitness, and special programs for kids and youth. Mt. SAC Community Education classes are not equivalent to credit classes and cannot be used to meet prerequisites in the Mt. SAC credit program. Community Education is a self-supporting entity of the college and is not funded by taxpayer dollars. Fees are based on the instructor’s salary, enrollment, duration of the class, administrative and operating costs.
