Auburn Enrichment Courses Available Without Prerequisites

At the beginning of Auburn University's spring 2015 semester, Josh Champion reviewed his class schedule with subtle frustration. Champion, a senior finance major at Auburn, found he was unable to enroll in a photography course. The official photography course at Auburn University requires prerequisites finance major's typically do not have.

"I bought a professional camera so I could take great pictures when I travel," Champion said. "I had hoped I could take a photography class, but I didn't have the pre-req's to get in."

Auburn students sharing Champion's frustration have the opportunity to participate in enrichment courses without worrying about prerequisites. Professional and enrichment courses, offered by the Office of Continuing and Professional Education (OCPE), provide students and non-students the opportunity to satisfy personal enrichment needs.

OCPE offers professional development and certification classes as well as test prep for exams like the ACT, GRE, GMAT and LSAT. In addition to these, it also offers enrichment courses that allow for the development of personal skills.
