    The course fee is $315 per unit and registration forms are available at the CCPE Student Services registration windows, located at the west end of the Foundation Building. Students must obtain instructor and department chair permissions to enroll in a class.

    Students enrolling through Open University will receive academic credit. Students may apply up to 24 units of this credit toward an undergraduate degree. At the option of the appropriate college and department, up to 9 units of academic credit may be applied toward a graduate degree.
