This report is a publication of San Diego Continuing Education, the noncredit division of the San Diego Community College District. The California Community College Noncredit Offerings Survey was conducted in partnership with the California Community College Chancellor’s Office Educational Services. SDCE conducted this study and survey on California Community College Noncredit Offerings to advocate for current and future noncredit programming in the state system. In 2016, SDCE conducted a statewide survey of all colleges associated with the state’s community college system. We obtained a 100% response rates from the chief instructional leaders. In 2017, we administered the second iteration of the survey. Once again, we obtained a 100% response rate. In 2018, we conducted the third year survey to establish a baseline for a longitudinal study, again with a 100% response rate. We now plan to disseminate this survey every three years, which will allow for a longitudinal analysis.
