Points to Know:
- Workforce Development/Continuing Education courses are not eligible for traditional financial assistance.

- A minimum number of students is required for a class to be taught. If fewer than the minimum number is enrolled by one week prior to the start date of the class, usually the class is canceled.

- If a course is canceled by the College, tuition will be refunded in full. If the course is taught and a student decides to drop, withdraw, or not come to class, normally no refund is given.

- A Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a nationally-recognized unit of credit for recording satisfactory completion of certain continuing education courses. One CEU represents ten contact hours of instructions. Completion certificates may be awarded to students who satisfactorily complete a continuing education course.

- Normally students under 16 years of age may take Workforce Development/Continuing Education courses with the written approval of a parent or guardian. Some courses are not available to minors due to South Carolina laws or due to the discretion of the instructor (primarily for safety concerns). - Senior citizens pay the same fees as other students for all courses.

All training programs are established to meet the specific needs of particular industries. Workforce Development/Continuing Education courses are not eligible for Title IV or S.C.

You may have heard of "workforce development or continuing education" courses available through South Carolina's technical colleges. These courses offer updating, upgrading and supervisory development training, both in-plant and on-campus. Training can be custom-tailored to meet the specific needs of industry and can provide courses for enhanced personal abilities through "hobby courses."
