Classes for Credit

Another path to enhancement can be found taking a credit course.

People take credit courses to:

  • start or complete a two-year degree (one that they never had the time or money for earlier in life)
  • meet interesting people, including award-winning faculty
  • enhance their resume
  • change careers
  • study a subject of interest
  • just for the pleasure of learning


I want an advanced degree

 Advanced Degrees

 A third way people meet career and personal goals is through completing an advanced degree. Anoka-Ramsey Community College offers several bachelor degree programs for people with a two-year degree, as well as graduate programs for people with a bachelor's degree.
