Non-Credit Courses

You don’t have to be formally admitted to the University of Illinois to access an Illinois education!

Illinois offers more than 170 noncredit online courses to the public through its partnership with Coursera. These online, flexible courses allow you take them from anywhere in the world at your own pace.

Noncredit courses are offered in a wide range of topics. Each course has its own unique learning outcome, competencies, and assessments.

Courses offer you the opportunity to gain general knowledge, stay on top of emerging trends, learn a new skill, upgrade existing skills, and develop personal interests. Find a course that’s right for you and grow and improve professionally or personally.

Noncredit courses aren’t financial aid eligible. They also aren’t applicable toward a degree, and they will not transfer. However, after completing a course, you will receive an Illinois/Coursera completion certificate, which you can put on your resume or LinkedIn page.

You can enroll in noncredit online courses using the Noncredit Online Enrollment Form.
