ENCORE is a Pierce College program designed specifically for older adults in our community. ENCORE offers free noncredit classes and fee-based, not for credit classes. Courses address the educational needs and interests of older adults, focusing on topics that promote independence, advocacy, community engagement, self-maintenance, personal growth and development, physical and cognitive health, economic self-sufficiency and includes subject matter that relates to older adults’ life circumstances and positive aging.

ENCORE Noncredit Classes generally meet for 2 hours a week for 15 weeks during the Fall and Spring semesters and for 5 weeks during the Winter and Summer semesters. Classes are free, curriculum based and funded through Sacramento. Students enrolled in ENCORE noncredit classes are Pierce College students in a noncredit program. Students may enroll at any time throughout the semester, if space is available.
