Lifelong Learning Students 

You've probably heard the words continuing education, non-credit or non-degree used to describe adult learners who take advantage of the opportunities afforded by community colleges.

At NVCC, we call it Lifelong Learning because our students recognize that learning is a part of growing and as responsible, contributing citizens, our growing never stops.

As a lifelong learning student, you can take advantage of any combination of opportunities to learn something new, reinvent yourself or expand your marketability in the workforce.

Search through our career or job-related courses for opportunities to develop new skills or upgrade the skills you already have for potential job advancement. Classes are generally short-term, credit-free, conveniently scheduled and do not require lengthy preparation. New classes start weekly, all year long. Easy registration is available, usually without transcript, grade or other academic requirements. Classes are offered in instructor-led classrooms or online.
