NOTE: Co-Listed Classes

Some of our classes are co-listed with credit classes. The two sections meet together, and students are held to the same expectations. The only differences are that non-credit students do not have to apply to the college, do not receive a final grade, and seniors can sign up at any time and receive a waiver. Co-listed classes usually have a small number of seats (2-5), so sign up early.
