Frequently Asked Questions

Do noncredit classes appear on my Ohlone transcript?

Noncredit classes will be recorded on the Ohlone noncredit transcript.

How do I show proof of course completion?

Students who complete certain vocational courses receive an official Ohlone College class certificate. Students who need additional documentation may ask for a letter of completion from the class instructor or from the academic division.

Is there different student ID # for noncredit classes?

No, your Ohlone College Student Identification Number (SID) is the same for all Ohlone College courses, both credit and noncredit classes.

Are there grades in noncredit classes?

Grades are not required in noncredit classes. However, instructors may decide to award grades or pass/no pass to students. Certificates of Competency do require that students who pass the program have a specific level of competency. Review specific details of each class or program.

Do noncredit classes meet all 16 weeks of a semester?

Some courses may meet all 16 weeks of each semester. However, other classes and certificate programs for noncredit are often condensed programs that meet for a specific number of days or weeks. Consult the individual class or program description for specific details about class scheduling.

Can I get Financial Aid for noncredit classes?

No. Federal Financial Aid is not available for noncredit classes. Noncredit classes are offered tuition free.

Which specific classes do I need to earn a vocational certificate?

Each certificate program is different and requires a specific sequence of classes and/or level of competency. This is noted in each noncredit program description.

Do I have to purchase books?

If books or other materials are required for the course, you are responsible for purchasing them. We suggest you do not purchase books until you have attended a class.

What do I get at the conclusion of the course?

A certificate that demonstrates mastery of the skills offered in the academy. You can include it in your resume!
