Platt College San Diego’s Professional Development Courses (PD) are designed for, but not limited to, professionals seeking to learn software, scripting or concepts that will enhance your knowledge in the Digital Media Design field.
It is very simple; Call 619-265-0107 and an admissions representative will be happy to assist you.
Some courses require pre-requisite skills and will be interviewed and assessed by the assigned instructor to make sure the student meets all of the prerequisites for the course, as well as to determine if the course will meet the expectations of the “PD student.” Please see designated course page for exact requirements.
Payment is due before entering course (cash or all major credit cards accepted). If course is not paid in full before course begins the “PD student” will be dropped from the course. There is no government financial aid for PD courses.
The “PD Student” will receive a certification of completion upon request. College credit, grade, transcript, diploma or an academic degree will not be issued.
The “PD student” will NOT receive an academic grade for course(s).
All courses are 100 clock hours and are held Monday-Friday, 8AM-12PM. All courses are 5-weeks in length.
Regular attendance is expected of the student. More than a 20% absence rate in a course will result in the “PD student” being dropped from the course. Nevertheless, the instructors have the prerogative to permit less than the above stated number of absences based on the specific requirements of the course.
Platt College San Diego is not responsible for placing the “PD student” into a job.
Enrollment in courses is subject to available seating.
An enrolled “PD student” can withdraw from the course without any penalty. The “PD student” will receive a full refund of any money paid if canceled prior to course beginning date or within the first seven days of enrollment. “Day” is defined as a calendar day.
Cancellation occurs when a “PD student” gives a written notice to the registrar of Platt College San Diego.
The student is financially responsible for any distributed supplies. If returned in saleable condition the “PD student” will receive a full refund on each supply.
If “PD student” attends less than 60% of the course there will be a pro rata calculation. No refund occurs if “PD student” attends more than 60% (15 course days) of the course.
