Continuing Education Unit

The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a nationally recognized method for recording participation in a continuing education (credit-free) program that does not carry credit toward a degree but does meet established criteria for increasing knowledge and competencies. One CEU is awarded for each 10 contact hours to those students who complete a minimum of 80 percent of an organized continuing education course.

CEU Award Criteria

Students wishing to earn CEUs must:

  • Demonstrate completion of all course objectives, skills, or assignments listed on the course outline.
  • Attend a minimum of 80% of the course sessions (more stringent criteria may be applied to the definition of successful completion of any or all of the courses at the discretion of CSM or its clients). Attendance will be taken for every class as part of the college's recordkeeping system and to meet the criteria for awarding CEUs.
