McCormick Theological Seminary may offer selected Masters level courses for continuing education units (CEUs); one CEU is granted for 10 contact hours. Such courses may have enrollment limits, and participation must be negotiated with the instructor. In order to be eligible to take a course on a continuing education basis, students who have not been admitted to a degree program must apply and be admitted as Special Students (see page 32). CEUs may not be changed to credits at any time. A fee equal to one half of the full tuition for the course will be charged. Fees will be waived for field education supervisors and members of lay ministry teams who enroll in courses for continuing education credit.
Students who attend continuing education events which are not classes and wish to receive CEUs may do so by registering for CEUs in advance of the event and paying a fee of $50 in addition to the cost of the event; this additional fee covers the recording of the CEUs on a permanent transcript. As with course work, CEUs are awarded on the basis of one CEU per ten contact hours.
