Benerd College offers extended education credits (Subject Code begins with "X") for Pacific and non-Pacific students to earn academic units to accelerate time to degree completion. Extension units are undergraduate-level, elective, academic units that cannot be applied toward a major requirement or an area requirement. Undergraduate students may take these courses to earn elective units adding to their total unit count required for completion of their academic degree. Students should check with their academic department regarding the total number of extension units counted toward the degree or full time status. Courses are offered in class and online.
Extension units may present a less expensive option for accumulating units towards a degree.
In addition, our extension courses are open to individuals in the community looking to take classes for personal enrichment or just for fun. The majority of our extension courses are online, so you can join anytime and learn at your own pace.
