What EXACTLY do you need to take one class at a community college?

I've been thinking about taking a class or two during the fall semester at the local community college. (Rowan-Cabarrus Community College)

The website is rather vague about what people want to do if they only want to take one or two classes. I've never been to college, and I don't know how any of it works. I don't want to enroll in a two-year program or anything. I just want to get out of the house and do some enrichment stuff.

  • Usually just the money. If it's like a community program toward a degree, I would visit and ask. but coming froma teacher standpoint I would thing a high school deploma would be sufficant. I would still ask.

  • get a hold of your school counselor. They can help answer all your questions. and come up with a plan that works for you.

  • I just went to the admissions office on campus and they walked me through it. Basically you pick a class, pay for it and register.

  • It depends on whether you want college credit or not. If you don't you will enroll with the continuing ed. or community enrichment office (it is called different things at different colleges)- which doesn't even require a high school diploma- & sign up for the class. If you want credit for it you have to apply to the college like any other student, you just don't enter any particular program.

  • You can also find out if they do community programs - the nearest community college to us has "classes" all the time in another nearby town, you have to pay for them, sometimes they're good for college credit, but most of the time it's just basic stuff (and you can take more that go higher up) that anyone in the community can do - and usually not at the college. Cheaper, more options (IMO), quicker, blah blah blah. Or call the college and ask - that's where you'll get the best answer.

  • Go to the college admission office and they will tell you everything you need to know.
