Continuing Education


In accordance with the Methodist University Mission Statement: "The university community seeks to develop whole persons who will contribute substantially and creatively to the professions and to civic life to the end that students may acquire enlightened minds and responsible spirits, as well as a continuing thirst for knowledge to provide educational and cultural services and resources to the community and to prepare students for a variety of careers and educational pursuits."

Our Focus

Continuing Education at Methodist University focuses on the licensed professionals who must update their training and skills and renew their licensure in their professions.

How to Earn CEU Credits and Certificates

Trainers and individuals apply to the CEU program director to verify and certify the successful completion of hours of training and the qualifications of the trainers. After the application is returned, the number of Continuing Education Units allowed is set.

A common example would be 1 CEU for 10 hours of contact. A two day session of 5 hours per day would equal 1 CEU. A two and a half day conference may equal 1.4 CEUs or 1.3 CEUs dictated by the hours of attendance. The application requires a schedule of the sessions offered, titles of sessions and the speaker's qualifications. This information allows us to determine the credits to be awarded. The hours of attendance, evaluations of sessions, collection of fees, qualifications of trainers, # of hours and session titles are recorded at the conference or seminar site by the applicant overseer.

Participants may receive partial CEU's 1.2 or .7 CEU's. They also may list the title of a 2 hours session to receive a certificate for .2 CEU's as verified by the trainer or overseer.

All information is collected at the site and with names and addresses of the participants; evaluations and checks are collected and sent to the Methodist University Continuing Education Program. All monies are deposited into a CEU account and certificates are printed and mailed directly to the participants.

Our participants include teachers, social workers, and a variety of religious denominations, special speaker's forums and seminars, musicians, Oratorio Singers and Bell Ringers and Christmas Choirs.
