    GUIDELINES - CONVERTING TO CREDIT

    Students completing a course for CEUs may later apply to have
    the course counted for regular semester-hour college credit.
    If converted to college credit, the course may then be
    counted toward requirements for a certificate or a degree.
    Students who wish to convert the course to college-credit may
    be required to pass a course content exam.
