This complements the School of Experiential Learning (SEL) which is intended to provide direct technical training in a number of core areas. (The School of Experiential Learning will begin admitting students in 2019.)
The College of General Studies awards diplomas and certificates in relevant areas while the School of Experiential Learning awards diplomas. Typically, certificate programs in CGS run less than a year while diploma programs run for 18-24 months. Diploma programs in SEL will run for 24-36 months.
