Services

The Center for Continuing Education (CCE) offers a variety of support services to assist MSU departments and faculty in the offering of non-credit educational programs. Our services include:

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) add significant value to noncredit programs. As a nationally approved provider of CEUs, CCE reviews non-credit programs and activities to determine if they qualify for CEU credit. In addition, we award CEU credit to individuals who successfully complete approved courses and maintain a 20 year registry of all approved courses and course participants. Having courses approved for CEU credit is simple and free to all MSU and Mississippi entities. For information on how to have a course approved for CEU credit visit our CEU page or contact Amber Shultice at ams257@msstate.edu or by phone at 662-325-1427.
