Business & Technical Communications Program

Continuing Education Certificate

With continuing-education courses, you do not have to apply for admission to the college, and you pay the same tuition (roughly the same as in-district tuition) no matter where you live.

Course Format

All courses in the Business & Technical Communications Program are offered both online and in the regular classroom. To accommodate online students, most instructors use meeting software (such as Adobe Connect) to broadcast audio and desktop activity over the Internet.


As of August 2009, tuition for continuing-education courses was $168 for 3-hour courses (for example, ETWR 1073) and $224 for 4-hour courses (for example, ETWR 2072).


Registration periods typically begin mid-November for spring semesters, mid-April for summer semesters, and late July for fall semesters.
