Community and Continuing Education


Community and Continuing Education non-credit programs reflect the latest industry and real-world development trends and offer exciting learning opportunities for our diverse community. These non-credit classes focus on students' specific interests, and allow them to reach a personal goal, whether that is employment, entertainment, or social engagement, in a short amount of time.


Community Education programs target students who are looking to develop their interests and hobbies, like Ceramics, Yoga, or Auto Maintenance. Morton College offers a review class for the college placement test, Summer STEAM and sport programs for young learners and Skills for Daily Living program for adults with mild to moderate intellectual disabilities.


Continuing Education program offers non-credit certificates for job seekers in industries with high-demand positions, including Healthcare, Hospitality, and Logistics & Transportation.  Students who earn an employer-recognized certificate are much more likely to find steady employment in the industry of their choice. The certificate courses are also for professionals already working in the field who are looking to advance their careers.
