Outreach Programs at Albany State University provide lifelong learning and educational services to the citizens of Southwest Georgia who need nontraditional programming and systems of delivery. The various programs are classified as non-credit Category I Continuing Education Units, (CEUs) or Category II for conferences, independent study, and pre-college programs. The curricula provide sound educational programs, which give the participant general as well as specialized education. The non-credit category includes courses for career development, personal enrichment, special conferences, workshops, lectures, institutes, and consultant services for a variety of professional and community needs. Independent study may be arranged at the high school and University levels through distance learning such as GSAMS, satellite, and/or web based instruction. All programs are planned for citizens who have varied backgrounds, different levels of maturity and limited time to further their education.
