Continuing Education Information 

Continuing Education Course Registration 

Persons eighteen years of age, or not yet eighteen who have completed high school, may be admitted to continuing education courses. In extenuating circumstances and upon the approval of the appropriate public school superintendent, persons under eighteen years of age may be admitted to continuing education courses. Prior to the beginning of each term, a course schedule is published and made available to potential students upon request. Courses which begin between semesters are announced through local news media.
Registration is Monday - Friday, 9 am - 5 pm.
Names are taken on a first come, first served basis until classes are filled.
Please call 838-6474. 


Pre-registration only assures a person a space in the class if that person is on time for the first class meeting. Registration will be completed at the first class meeting when students pay fees (unless otherwise required). Classes without a minimum number of paying students physically present and on time to register at the first class meeting will be canceled. A student may not register for someone else. Fees are not refundable for community service and self-supporting classes. Self-supporting classes have a registration fee for all participants. There are no exemptions. Late registration is permitted through the second class meeting.



Continuing Education fees vary depending on the course classification. Some programs, such as Basic Skills and Human Resources Development, are free of student fees. Books and supplies are the responsibility of students and may be purchased from the College Bookstore. 


Class Locations 

Many adult education courses and services are provided on the college campus. Other courses and services are provided at off-campus locations in Wilkes, Ashe, and Alleghany counties.
