CEU Application Process
What is a Continuing Education Unit (CEU)? A CEU is a way of measuring an individual’s participation in a continuing education program (such as those offered by the Hutchinson Center). CEUs were established to verify that a person has completed the required program to get their professional certificates, which allows them to continue practicing. Professionals can use CEUs to improve skills and stay current with new technology, laws and requirements that may apply to their fields.
Further inquiries about the CEU application process should be directed to: email@example.com or 207.338.8000.
For Sponsoring Departments/Agencies
Hosting a conference or continuing education program? The Hutchinson Center can process CEU credits for your attendees. The approval process generally takes a minimum of 10 business days. All CEU applications must be pre-approved. Approval of educational activities after the fact is generally not possible.
Upon completing the CEU application process, the Hutchinson Center will assign a CEU number to the application and create and send back a CEU Participant Form. The CEU Participant Form may be copied and distributed to each participant.
A $40 fee for reviewing the program must accompany your application. UMaine departments may submit an IDO.
The participant should be responsible for sending back the completed CEU Participant Form. Both the participant’s biographical information section and the CEU sponsor’s or the sponsor’s representative’s signature verifying the attendance and participation of the participant must be filled out.
A $20.00 processing fee must also accompany the completed CEU Participant Form.
The form must be completed in full with the signature of the original sponsor. The Hutchinson Center will then issue an official University of Maine transcript to the participant. All participants’ CEU activities taken under the auspices of the University of Maine are comprehensively archived, i.e., each participant’s CEU activity will be added to any previous CEU activities. CEU credit is not transferable to academic credit.
