About the Office of Continuing Education

Welcome to the Continuing Education at Nicholls State University.

Nicholls is a campus for the community, and the Office of Continuing Education is committed to showcasing our commitment to life-long learning.

It is our goal to provide personal enrichment through education. Youth summer camps and adult non-credit courses are two areas that provide unique opportunities to learn new skills, pick up new hobbies or meet new people with similar interests.

For those focused on the future, we offer career training through our Workforce Development program. Live and online course options can help you bring valuable skills back to your current job or even prepare you for a new career.

Our program offerings are always changing and growing. Please visit our site often to stay informed about all the great resources through Continuing Education at Nicholls State University.

The registration deadline for each program is one week prior to the start date unless otherwise stated. No refund will be made after the registration deadline. Refunds may take four to six weeks to process.

Registration may be done in person, by mail, by fax, or online at our website. The registration deadline for each program is one week prior to the start date, unless otherwise noted. Registrations received after the registration deadline will be considered late and may be subject to an additional $10 late fee.

 

Payments can be made in the form of cash, check, money order or credit card. Make checks and money orders payable to Nicholls State University. Regardless of when a person registers or the format used, once a person registers for a program, payment in full is required.
