Noncredit - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
In general, credit classes are designed for students who are interested in earning college credits towards an associate degree, certificate, or transfer to a four-year college or university. Students who take credit classes receive a letter grade (A, B, C, D or F) at the end of the semester or term.
Noncredit classes are intended for students who want to gain general knowledge, learn a new skill, upgrade existing skills, enrich their understanding about a topic, or develop personal interests. Noncredit classes are also a way to enhance learning in credit classes. Upon completion of a noncredit class, students may receive a grade of Pass (P), No Pass (NP) or Satisfactory Progress (SP). Some noncredit classes do assign standard letter grades (A, B, C, D, or F).
Yes, students may register for noncredit classes online only after successfully submitting an admission application to Las Positas College. Once admitted, students may register for noncredit classes online through CLASS-Web, the student online portal.
