CEU hours & transcripts

A page within Extended Learning

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are a means of recognizing and recording satisfactory participation in non-degree programs. University of Wisconsin-La Crosse (UWL) awards one CEU for every 10 contact hours in a continuing education experience. Actual contact hours are recorded. To receive a certificate, participants must sign up for CEUs at the time of registration.

UWL CEUs fulfill continuing education requirements for many professionals, agencies and organizations. Professional associations may have specific licensing requirements. Individuals should contact their professional association, agency or organization before assuming UWL CEUs will fulfill those requirements.

UWL keeps records of individual CEUs for three years. Certificates are emailed within two weeks of the conclusion of each program. Requests for duplicate CEU certificates are charged a $15 processing fee.

UWL keeps records of individual CEUs for three years of programming. Certificates are emailed within two weeks of the conclusion of each program. Email ex@uwlax.edu to request a duplicate certificate.
