04:65:00 Continuing Education Units 


Northeast State Community College (NeSCC) recognizes the importance of lifelong learning for its students, faculty, staff, graduates and members of the public at large. In addition to academic credit bearing programs, NeSCC is committed to offer continual learning options for all students. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are units of credit equal to 10 hours of participation in a qualified continuing education program.  

CEUs recognize and record the efforts of individuals who successfully complete continuing education courses, workshops, seminars, and specially formatted education offerings. The recording of the CEU on the college transcript provides a permanent record of participation in non-degree coursework. Continuing Education Units may not be applied toward any Northeast State degree or credit certificate. 


CEUs may be granted to students participating in continuing education courses conducted, facilitated, or or offered in partnership with the College. A record of course content and student attendance will be maintained by the College. CEUs will be granted using the following ratio: 1 CEU for every 10 instructional contact hours. 

NeSCC is responsible for establishing the content of its continuing education courses/programs based on identified needs/emerging trends, for ensuring appropriate venues for their delivery, and for their management and accreditation.  

NeSCC is financially responsible for its continuing education activities and controls all income and expenditures related to these activities, including payment to participating faculty and staff. The College is responsible for maintaining an official record system of all continuing education activities that it sponsors, including the roster of participants in these activities. 

Admission to all publicly offered Adult, Corporate Education, and Continuing Education programs is open on a first-come, space-available basis unless special admission and/or partnership affiliation requirements must be met.
