The presence of the extension centers allows traditional and non-traditional students to pursue or continue their education because the students are able to attend classes that are close to home. The extension centers offer a variety of general education, liberal arts, basic adult education, continuing education and children’s classes. The extension centers provide opportunity for students to attend classes close to home, prepare for the GED, learn skills to become an effective employee and parent, gain knowledge in basic computer skills, and address other interests of the community, as well as provide wholesome activities for children.

The extension centers allow students to utilize information, applications, financial aid forms, advisement, a place to study, pay tuition, and have access to the computer lab. The extension centers are a place where personal contact with students and citizens of the communities are valued. Knowing the needs of the students and the community, providing information, attending organizational meetings, and offering specific classes students want are just a few examples. The facility provides a pleasant and quiet atmosphere and is easily accessible to those in the surrounding communities.
