Bringing Education to You

Non Credit

Registration

To register for a non-credit class, certificate, or CEU opportunity, search in the "List of NC Classes" and click on the "register now" link. All registration is conveniently available online. 

Admission

Non-credit and leisure studies activities, as well as continuing education units (CEUs), do not require admission into North Dakota State University because they are not eligible for credit towards degree seeking programs. Leisure studies will not appear on a transcript and do not apply towards a degree program of study.   

Tuition & Fees

Class, workshop, conference, CEU, and certificate prices vary for each activity. Please check each individual listing for pricing information.

Accreditation: 

In general, CEUs are approved by the various licensing bodies that require them.  This means that NDSU or the organization we partner with to offer CEUs must apply to the different licensing bodies before CEUs can be offered. Some licensing bodies do not require preapproval of CEUs as long as another agency approved them or as long as the topic is related to their specific need, in these situations NDSU may offer general CEUs.  General CEUs can also be used by companies to verify that the employee attended the course. Participants should verify standards with their organization or licensing board to ensure these classes will meet their individual needs prior to registering.

NDSU Distance and Continuing Education is accredited through NDSU's accreditation by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools
