Q:    What Continuing Education opportunities does PRCC offer?

Q:    How are Continuing Education Units (CEUs) processed at PRCC?
A:    Pearl River Community College transcripts the CEUs when a local school district or other approved organization requests approval to host a CEU professional development session. For more information on this process review the Continuing Education web site and then call 601-403-1374.

Q:    What is the process to receive approval to host a CEU course?
A:        It is very important that the established procedure be followed in order to host a CEU course.

  1. At least two weeks prior to the date of the course, request approval by completing the CEU Host Request form.
  2. Upon approval of the course, use the provided CEU Transcript Request form to gather the information from each course participant.
  3. Submit the required information at the completion of the course. For more information, review the Continuing Education web site.

Q:    How many CEUs can be earned for each hour of the course?

Q:    What is the difference between CEUs and community education classes?
A:    Continuing Education Units are opportunities for individuals who need training to retain certification. Community education opportunities are provided to teach people a hobby or to reinforce life-long learning.

A:    There is a flat processing fee of $35 regardless of the number of CEUs that are being earned.
