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 record-keeping system and to meet the criteria for awarding CEUs.

CEU Record

Continuing education students can acquire a continuing education record that will list the continuing education units completed, beginning with the 2004 spring semester. Students may obtain a continuing education record one of several ways:

  1. Students may visit a CSM campus and request their record. Students may wait and pick up their record at the Express Counter in the Administration (AD) Building at the La Plata Campus, the Lobby of Building C at the Leonardtown Campus, or the John E. Harms Academic Center (Building A), Room 101 at the Prince Frederick Campus during normal business hours.
  2. Students may also request their record by mail or fax. Please send a request to the Registrar's Office and include the following (or fill out the continuing education record request form):
    • Name (and any former names used)
    • Current mailing address
    • A contact phone number in case of questions
    • Social security number and Student ID number (if known)
    • Last semester attended
    • Number of transcripts requested
    • The address(es) to send the record(s)
