Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

Hudson Valley Community College awards Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to those who complete designated courses, workshops and seminars.

The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a uniform measurement of individual participation in non-credit programs. One Continuing Education Unit represents 10 contact hours (ex. for a designated course 30 contact hours = 3 CEUs).

In order to receive CEUs, students must successfully complete courses according to the instructor's standards. Typically, this involves 75% attendance; however, there may be additional requirements.

Please be sure to check with your instructor at the beginning of the course.

Records kept for those students who accumulate CEUs will be available upon written request from the Registrar's Office.
