This study aims at highlighting the role of Continuous Education Programs at the Saudi Universities in Religious, Social, and Health Literacy; King Saud University was taken as an example. To achieve the goals of the study two questionnaires were distributed among two samples from King Saud University; (101) of students, and (9) of continuous education centers' directors. Results showed that continuous education programs presented in religious awareness development do not contribute sufficiently in developing them. However; continuous education programs have favorable role in community's social culturing. Also, continuous education programs contribute, at medium degree, in community's health culturing. On the other hand; people in charge agree that the investment revenue in financing continuous education programs is minor as well as financing offered by the University. In light of the study results, the researchers recommended paying more attention to present more continuous education programs of concern as to individuals' needs through cooperation with the research center in the University to perform survey studies targeted to define the individuals' needs in terms of religious, social and health issues.
