What is a Continuing Education Unit (CEU)?
A Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a nationally recognized unit of measurement for noncredit continuing education programs. It is designed to document valid learning experiences that differ from courses for which academic credits are traditionally awarded.
One CEU is defined as representing ten (10) contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction. CEUs are based on 60-minute hours. This means that 0.1 CEU is granted for every 60 minutes of contact time. This includes time you are studying online, participating in group chats or discussions, doing homework, reading, research and class assignments.
How many CEUs are earned per Berklee Online course?
A 12 week course will earn 6 continuing education units.
What are the fees for choosing CEUs with my course?
Courses that have been chosen for the Continuing Education Unit (CEU) feature will be assessed a fee of $25.00 per course in addition to the regular tuition. The CEU fee will not be refunded if you drop a course, but will be refunded if your course section is cancelled.
How do I obtain a transcript of my CEUs
ACE will provide students with a transcript of their CEUs. For more information on obtaining a transcript please visit ACE Transcript Services.
