Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are nationally recognized units of achievement that are used as evidence of increased technical competence. You earn one CEU for every 10 hours of class.

Participants who successfully complete certain Continuing Education courses, such as professional development courses, will earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools defines a CEU as 10 contact hours of participation in an organized educational experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction. Georgia Southern University CEUs offered via the Division of Continuing and Professional Education may be used as evidence of career development and to support job enhancement.

Most of our professional courses and conferences provide a certified Georgia Southern University document that serves as proof that you completed the course material.
