Life Long Learning is an umbrella term that includes noncredit education, continuing education, and community education (fee-based) courses. The College of the Siskiyous Life Long Learning Program provides the opportunity for lifelong learners to improve, upgrade, and learn new skills and knowledge. This effort responds to the need for a well-trained workforce, as well as the individual need for intellectual or cultural enrichment. Life Long Learning courses are also easy, fun, and cost-effective. Classes offered will be held in a variety of locations throughout Siskiyou County.
College of the Siskiyous offers a number of community education and continuing education classes for personal enrichment and skill development. These classes are offered as "fee-based" classes. Classes offered are in areas of public interest and are open to the entire community. Community Education offers the student countless ways to benefit from the experience and expertise of our instructors and industry specialists who teach our classes. Classes are offered throughout the year and are scheduled based on availability of instructors and interested students. Check the website often for updates. www.siskiyous.edu/extension/.
For class details, check the Schedule of Classes. When you are ready to register, visit our online mySiskiyous registration site or fill out the short (Extension only) registration form. To see all Community Education classes, select all subjects under Subject and select "Community Education" under Course Level.
The expansion of noncredit course offerings is an ongoing effort to better serve the needs of the community and the aspiring learner. Noncredit courses serve the needs of parents, older adults, and those looking to obtain a high school diploma or equivalency, and increase basic or job-specific skills. Noncredit is also for individuals with disabilities looking for an opportunity to increase their skills through specifically targeted courses. These tuition-free courses are available with "open access" to educational opportunities and lifelong learning to increase diverse communities and life-enriching acitivities through course offerings. The course roster featured in this publication is still in development and classes will be scheduled soon. We will however be offering a noncredit Life Story writing course for the Summer 2017 listed in the schedule. Please watch the College of the Siskiyous website for the possible addition of other lifelong learning courses in the areas of health & wellness and the arts, in the Summer noncredit course schedule.
Noncredit courses will be offered at both the Weed and Yreka campuses, as well as at other sites and locations throughout the county.
