Texas Tech University

Continuing Education

A continuing education unit (CEU) is a nationally recognized unit of achievement. Texas Tech University is among the many colleges and universities throughout the U.S. that award CEUs. CEU credit is normally awarded for learning activities that provide three or more hours of instruction (contact hours). Any program or activity approved for CEU credit must comply with internationally recognized standards. By successfully completing ten hours of instruction, an individual earns 1.0 CEUs. Other activities may apply, please submit application for evaluation.
