Bringing Education to You

Non Credit

CEU Opportunities

North Dakota State University Continuing Education can grant either contact hours or Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for conferences and workshops, depending on the needs of the audience. Continuing Education can provide participants with transcripts of their CEU activities. A Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is used for activities which do not qualify for college credit. Adults in non-credit activities may use the CEU for the measurement, recording, transfer and recognition of participation. A CEU is defined as "ten contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction and qualified instruction."
