Community Education

If you consider lifelong learning as important as we do, Chaffey College can provide you with a wealth of high-quality professional development, continuing education and youth programs. Our programs give you and your family opportunities to learn, grow and develop. We make our programs accessible by providing convenient instruction times and by keeping them open to everyone – even if you’re not enrolled in credit courses at Chaffey. Community education programs are different than others offered at Chaffey because they do not result in college credit, they don’t meet credit course prerequisite requirements and are not funded through tax dollars. Community education is funded through enrollment fees.
