Non-credit Adult Education

Welcome to Evergreen Valley College's​

Non-Credit Adult Education -

"Your Gateway to the Future" 

Non-Credit Adult Education courses are designed for students who wish to advance their educational and career goals. Our Non-Credit courses are FREE and do not have prerequisites. 

Learning is contextualized and meaningful.   Our Non-Credit Bridge classes serve as as a gateway into credit certificate and degree programs that lead to entry level employment.

Our Non-Credit Courses and Bridge Services increase access for students from diverse backgrounds and those with the goal  to improve their earning power, literacy skills and access to higher education.

For many, particularly those from historicallly underrepresented and economically disadvantaged backgrounds, it is the first point of entry into college.


Benefits of Non-Credit Education include:

•Flexible scheduling

•Focus on skill attainment, not grades or units – Learn at your own pace

•No repeatability limits

•No tuition - FREE to all students

​South Bay Consortium for Adult Education (SBCAE)


The SBCAE is a collaboration of two Community College Districts (SJECCD and WVMCCD) and five adult schools.  This collaboration is the third largest AB86 Consortium in the state and in 2013-14 served a total of 44,574 adult learners in the five Program Areas defined by AB86.

The SBCAE Vision is to ensure that there is "No Wrong Door" for South Bay adults who wish to advance their educational and career goals, and that all residents can meet their goals regardless of income, prior education and personal circumstances.
