Lifelong Learners


WELCOME TO THE
PIERPONT COMMUNITY AND
TECHNICAL COLLEGE

LIFELONG LEARNERS WEB PAGE


The Pierpont Community and Technical College Lifelong Learners is a membership driven, non-credit continuing education program for adults interested in remaining mentally and socially active. Lifelong Learners provides educational opportunities for area residents aged 50 and older, regardless of prior college affiliation or educational background. Emphasis is on offering short-term programs in a variety of subject areas – enhanced through the active participation of course participants. Programs are often supplemented by planned social activities, lectures, trips and other events of significant membership interest. 


An annual membership fee allows you to register for as many courses as you wish and to take advantage of additional Lifelong Learner benefits. Membership fees also provide funds for scholarships for Pierpont Community and Technical College students in need of financial aid.

Lifelong Learner programs are available during the fall and spring semesters.
