CEU Approval Procedures

Before the Program

To have a program approved for CEU credit you must complete and submit a CEU Approval Form 14 days prior to the program start date. All approval requests must include:

  • a detailed program agenda/schedule that includes start and end times
  • all instructor/speaker vitas or resumes
  • a copy of the course evaluation form
  • any pertinent program materials (program brochure, flyer, or website address)

Once a Program is Approved

In order for participants to receive their CEU credits, the program instructor or sponsoring unit must submit a course sign-in sheet to verify participant attendance and a copy of participant course evaluations. These items must be submitted within two-weeks of program completion. CEUs will not be awarded until course sign-in sheets, participant course evaluations, and payment is received from the participant or sponsoring group. Groups paying for participant CEUs can submit payment by check or JV transfer (MSU departments only). For information on where to send checks or submit JV payments contact ceu@ext.msstate.edu or call 662-325-1457.

Course Renewals

CEU course approvals are good for one calendar year from the date of approval. After one year all courses must be renewed. Course renewals do not require additional documents or payment. Those wishing to renew a course within the one year course approval time can send an email to ceu@ext.msstate.edu stating the name of the course and the new course dates.

* Only courses with the exact same instructor, location, agenda, etc., will be considered a renewal course.

  • Submitted CEU approval request will be reviewed within three business days.
