Community Education Courses

Some GTU courses may be of interest to community patrons or non-matriculated students who wish to take the course for personal fulfillment. Such courses may be linked to a regular for-credit-course or be completely independent. These courses do not come with an academic credit that can be counted toward a degree or certificate at the GTU.
