Continuing Education Unit Participant Records

Auburn University awards continuing education units (CEUs) to eligible individuals who have registered for and attend all segments of approved outreach noncredit instructional programs, and who meet all learning objectives stated for those programs.

Auburn University adheres to the guidelines and criteria for noncredit continuing education programming set forth by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). These define continuing education units as:

  • One CEU is equal to ten contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education activity under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction.

Many individuals participate in continuing education programs for job advancement or as required in their profession for maintenance of certifications or licenses. Auburn University maintains records on approved CEU awards for eligible individuals as an acknowledgment of their continuing education experience. All participant CEU records and personal information are maintained under strict guidelines for security and privacy of the individual; records and other communications are transmitted by secure and confidential means.

For a $5.00 fee, an official copy of your CEU record may be obtained upon request by completing the Auburn University CEU Record Order Form.
