General Education Courses and Training

Do you need to complete coursework before starting a degree program at Carrington College or elsewhere? Carrington offers general education courses and training to help non-degree-seeking students meet prerequisite requirements for other programs. Our courses are designed with students’ goals in mind. The instructor-led courses are delivered using an approach to engage students and encourage interaction and participation.

Prerequisite Courses Offered at Carrington College

Prerequisite courses or “prereqs” are courses that must be completed prior to enrolling in specific Carrington College programs, or programs at another institution. Not all Carrington College programs have prerequisites, and prerequisite courses may vary by program. Some general education (GE) courses may also be available online.
Completion of a program’s general education requirements at Carrington College does not guarantee entry into any of the programs. If you intend to transfer Carrington College courses to another institution, you must contact that institution directly to determine the transferability of units. Accepting transfer credits is always and only up to the receiving institution.
