All ITS computer applications classes are open to University students, faculty and staff free of charge. These non-credit classes are intended for individuals with basic computer skills.  Some classes are offered as a series and we recommend completing the series to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the application's capabilities. 

Faculty/Staff:  Scheduling and content of a class can be tailored to meet the needs of an academic course or a department.
