Information for CEU Event Organizers

Thank you for partnering with CSU Monterey Bay to offer your students continuing education units (CEUs) for your workshop or other educational event. Our goal is to make this process as easy for you as possible so all information is available online for both you and your students.

The following information will help us to evaluate your course and qualify your event for continuing education units (CEUs). Events are qualified by the number of teaching hours excluding breaks, lunches and travel time.

A Continued Education Unit (CEU) is a nationally recognized measuring method used to quantify approved learning during professional development and training activities.

CSUMB College of Extended Education offers CEUs for qualified events based on the number of training hours provided:

  • One (1.0) CEU is earned for 10 clock hours spent in a planned, structured learning experience or activity.
    • 10 hours = 1.0 CEU
    • CEU hours are rounded down: 12.5 hours = 1.2 CEUs; 7.5 hours = 0.7 CEUs, etc.
  • For unit conversion purposes: One (1.0) CEU is equivalent to one (1.0) non-degree track quarter unit value.
  • CEUs are not academic units and cannot be transferred to a degree program.
