Center for Continuing Education


Message From The Director


Welcome to the Center for Continuing Education at Texas A&M University-Kingsville!

Our Center is here to provide non-credit courses to everyone on campus and in the community. Courses are offered in the following areas: business, trade and professional development; academic preparation; and personal enhancement. Classes are held on or off-campus or they are offered on-line, through interactive video or hybrid formats. Our Center provides Continuing Education Units (C.E.U.’s) to participants of seminars and workshops in education, engineering, business, environment, finance and other topics. “Proactive and Situational Leadership”, “Sustainability in Your Business”, and “Professional and Business Ethics” are some of the new workshops that we offer to businesses and other organizations in the community. We also work closely with the youth and children in the community through our academic and testing preparation programs, tutoring services and our “College for Kids” Program.

We are proud of our staff and instructors for making these diverse and quality programs possible.

Please explore our website and discover what our Center has to offer. We look forward to your collaboration and participation in our programs.
