Community members may enroll in regular credit classes beginning two weeks before the term starts, on a space-available basis and with instructor approval. (All students must have an unmodified high school diploma; other restrictions apply for some classes.) You may take the class for credit and a grade, or “audit” the class. Oregon residents age 65+ may audit classes at no charge.
