2021-2022 College Catalog

Continuing and Community Education

TBCC is committed to life-long learning. The continuing and community education program plays an important role in this philosophy. Classes in this program are non-credit and students take them for personal enrichment, personal interest, or to enhance work skills.

For the convenience of all district residents, classes are offered throughout Tillamook County and vary from short sessions and workshops to full-term courses that are scheduled during the day, evenings, and weekends. Each term TBCC publishes a Schedule of Classes that shows what is being offered for that term. The schedule can be found on our website www.tillamookbaycc.edu or in hard copy at the main campus and is mailed to all residential addresses in Tillamook, County. If you have questions, you can contact (503) 842-8222 ext. 1320.

Continuing Education Units

Course numbers beginning with “CEU” are classes that award continuing education units (CEUs) rather than college credits. CEUs are not equivalent to credit hours, and therefore may not be used toward TBCC certificates or degrees. Some programs offering CEU classes offer recertification or CEU certificates. One CEU is awarded for each 10 hours or their equivalent. TBCC transcript records are available for CEU hours. Tuition for CEU courses is charged regardless of the number of credit hours for which the student enrolls. CEU classes do not meet the federal requirements for financial aid or most veterans’ benefits. For more information, call (503) 842-8222 ext. 1320.
