Center for Professional Education offers continuing education units (CEUs) to recognize and record satisfactory participation in non-degree programs. One CEU is awarded for each 10 contact hours (or equivalent) of classroom participation. CEUs provide a useful cumulative record of your non-credit study and simplify transfer of such records. They are designed for use where employers, licensure agencies, and other authorities require a specified number of non-credit study hours on a regular basis for career advancement. All CEUs earned through The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga non-degree programs become part of your permanent record.
