Continuing Education Programs


CEU Documentation Services

CEU Documentation

We can help you evaluate your program and establish, arrange and award continuing education units for your participants. A continuing education unit (CEU) is a measure of participation in an organized non-credit continuing education experience under sponsorship by an appropriate authority, with instruction, direction, and evaluation by qualified personnel.  

CEUs have far-reaching benefits to you and your organization

Many industries require proof of continuing education for re-licensure. We work with the Office of Institutional Assessment and Compliance and the Office of the Registrar to record and report continuing education activity and official CEU activity for the university. The university applies strict guidelines to ensure proper documentation of all educationally based activities provided on behalf of the University of South Carolina. 

If you are considering whether to offer CEUs or a certificate as part of your program, we are here to help you! We offer a number of professional education courses and certificate programs and realize the time it takes to put together and manage a program. Let us help you with registration and program coordination. Contact us at pep@mailbox.sc.edu and we will put together a customized proposal for you.

Our services may include:

  • CEU and/or noncredit certificate approval and processing
  • Registration of participants (mail, fax, or online)
  • Fee collection and distribution
  • Classroom or meeting space reservations
  • Food/beverage services during on-site instruction
  • Data entry of participants, completion, and noncredit transcript maintenance
  • Providing summary reports
  • Promotion of the certificate program on our website, and design/printing of promotional materials 

 

We define continuing education at the university 

Understanding the difference between continuing education activity, CEUs and noncredit certificate programs will help you determine the best fit for your program. The first step is to learn what defines the different aspects of continuing education. Once you are comfortable with the definitions, we can guide you step-by-step through the process of creating your program.
