Short courses, workshops, or conferences can offer both for-credit and Continuing Education Units (CEUs) based upon need and contact hours. Although the majority of course offerings are initiated by the University, courses may originate through requests by individuals and/or community groups. Such special request courses may take place either on- or off-campus.
In-house training programs, administered under the Conference and Short Courses Program, are available to meet the ever-changing needs of business and industry. The programs can be designed to meet the specific needs of an organization and may be presented at a company site or, if requested, at the University.
Departmental initiated study-abroad academic opportunities are also run through the short course program.
