San Diego Continuing Education (SDCE) is the adult education division of the San Diego Community College District (SDCCD). As the largest provider of noncredit education in California, SDCE’s mission is to provide accessible, equitable, and innovative quality education and career training to adult students. SDCE has offered career training and other classes continuously for more than 100 years.
Founded in 1914 on the principles of inclusion and social justice, SDCE welcomes every immigrant, refugee and underserved population to fulfill educational goals. At SDCE, adult students find a fun and positive learning environment for every skill level. Students come from across 50 states and from 160 foreign countries, to learn in more than 70 free career training programs and in thousands of classes. In addition to a traditional schedule of fall, spring and summer semesters, many programs are offered online, allowing students to pursue higher education or career training while maintaining other responsibilities and active lives.
SDCE was one of the first community college continuing education institutions in California to meet the standards for independent accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
