Continuing Education Units (CEU) are non-academic units for recognition of short learning experiences, such as conferences, seminars, or other short programs, presented in organized formats to post-secondary level learners. CEU are not academic credits and are not considered professional development for teacher certification.
Units are awarded based upon contact hours of participation; 10 contact hours equals 1 CEU. Regulation D-5 in the General Catalog and the Faculty-Staff Handbook Section 4250 describe continuing education units in detail. Students may not receive continuing education units and academic credit for the same learning activity.
CEU can be offered by academic departments as well as professional agencies that provide training seminars. CEU are designated as number 001 under the corresponding academic subject.
How to Request a CEU
- The academic department or agency offering the training completes the CEU Request form and submits it to the corresponding academic department at the university for approval.
- Once approved by the College the form is submitted to the Registrar; must be a miniumum of 2 weeks prior to the first meeting date.
- The Registrar will generate a Registration Number (CRN) for the semester and notify the coordinator via email with registration instructions to be provided to participants wishing to earn CEU.
Registration and Awarding of CEU
- Each participant who wishes to earn CEU must complete and submit a CEU Registration form to the Registrar along with the total registration fee.
- After each participant is registered and the program is completed, the instructor must enter a grade through VandalWeb to confirm satisfactory completion (S). Grades are due within 72 hours after end of the program.
- CEU will be recorded on a transcript upon completion; the university does not provide certificates of completion for CEU programs.
- Participants needing confirmation of CEU may request a copy of their official transcript.
