This program has been approved for 1.7 continuing education units (CEU) (10 hours = 1 CEU).
What Is a Continuing Education Unit?
Earning a CEU from SDSU Global Campus can help you gain credibility, boost your résumé, continue your professional development, and move your career forward by participating in career development opportunities.
The primary purpose of a CEU is to provide a permanent record of your educational accomplishments by participating in a non-credit educational program. You can use this record to give employers, professional associations, or societies a uniform measure of your completion of a short-term educational program.
Please note that CEUs are not academic units and will not appear on an SDSU transcript. This means that you can’t apply CEUs to degree work at institutions of higher education.
How Can I Earn CEUs?
CEU fees are not included in the W.I.T.H. conference fee. In order to receive your SDSU Global Campus CEU certificate, you’ll need to submit conference attendance sheets to the conference coordinator.
