Q: What is the difference between a fee-based class and a non-credit class?

A: A fee based class is a short term course offered for a specific fee. Most of the courses in Continuing Education fall into this category. A limited number of non-credit courses are available and usually feature some specific learning objectives such as English as a Second Language, or Conversational Spanish. Non credit courses require a different registration process than fee based classes.
