At El Centro College, students have many educational options. Some options lead immediately to a career. Others prepare you for transfer to a college or University. El Centro College’s courses and programs are separated into departments, called divisions.
If your goal is to complete your
core curriculum (sometimes called the general education core) or finish your
Associate of Arts (AA) or
Associates of Science (AS) degree in order to transfer, then you’ll need to take courses in the Academic Transfer and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Divisions.
The list of courses are below:
The Business, Design and Public Service division aims to help you expand the scope of your dreams and provide you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to turn your dreams into realities!
We offer a variety of stimulating face-to-face, online and hybrid classes that are provided by a committed, highly-trained faculty and staff.
The Division of Health and Legal Studies is home to some of El Centro College's most dynamic programs, leading to many different rewarding careers in the nursing and allied health professions.
Many of our health occupations and nursing programs may be just what you are looking for!

Distance Learning offers students a flexible, convenient way to earn college credit. You can choose from associate degree and certificate options, taking courses where it’s convenient for you - at home, in your office, on a military base or anyplace else you like. Distance Learning lets you learn using desktop and laptop computers, the Internet, audio players and other portable devices.
The core of learning in college is a set of courses that will provide you with the knowledge, skills and educational experiences you need to succeed in higher education. Those classes — called the Core Curriculum — are the courses that lead to an associate degree from El Centro College and which then transfer to four-year colleges and universities.
