Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
Many noncredit classes earn participants Continuing Education Units (CEUs) a nationally recognized measure of skills or work-related training. These courses meet established criteria, including “responsible sponsorship, capable direction and qualified instruction.” One CEU represents 10 class hours of participation in courses so designated. They are identified in this schedule by the words “CEUs awarded” in the course description. Certification of CEUs earned will be mailed to all students who successfully complete a qualifying noncredit course. Refer to the Student Records Policy for information on obtaining a student record.
