In addition, other classes are offered, such as cultural, vocational/work force training, recreational, adult education, in-service seminars, and other special programming.

Interest is particularly strong at many instructional sites in classes focusing on the cultural traditions and Indigenous knowledge of the Tribal communities. A variety of delivery methods are employed to teach classes. Methods of instructional delivery include onsite teaching using local instructors, Interactive Telecourses (ITV), Learning Contracts (LC), Independent Learning (IL), Video Conferencing (VC), and Online Courses (OL).

Student support and enrollment services are provided to extended campus sites by professional staff located at the main Lummi Campus and at various sites.
