Division of Continuing Education

Continuing Education Seal 08 color

The Division of Continuing Education at Southern Arkansas University provides a variety of affordable non-credit courses that educate, entertain, and enrich the diverse interests and needs of the community. Classes are offered in the fall, spring, and throughout the summer each year.

Fall and spring classes are designed to help individuals improve and enrich their personal and professional lives. Courses range in subject matter from computer basics and diverse topics such as photography, water exercise, floral design, and many other subjects. Our summer classes have a well-established program of educational, creative, and athletic courses specifically designed for young people. We offer classes for all ages from kindergarten readiness to college prep. Class sections are available by age and skill level, so students will always feel comfortable and confident.
