We also offer Career Education (CE) certificates and degrees and transfer credit for students who wish to continue their education at a four-year college or university.

FLC believes that education should belong to everyone. To nourish this inclusion, we champion equity, diversity, social justice, and environmental sustainability as foundational to academic, campus, and community life.
