To earn 1 undergraduate or graduate workshop credit a minimum of 15 hours of direct instructional time is required. A maximum of 3 hours may be earned through related delivered learning events such as workshops, seminars, conferences, online offerings, study groups, book studies or engaged time in application and reflection on application as identified in the work plan.

CEU's may be awarded in increments of 1/1Oth CEU for each hour of direct participation in an organized and approved noncredit continuing education activity offered and managed by a responsible and competent sponsor with academic direction and qualified instruction.
To submit your professional learning event for credit, complete ALL elements of the application and submittal.
