The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a nationally recognized uniform unit of measurement to record individual participation in non-credit academic, professional development educational and training programs. It is based upon attendance in non-degree non-credit academic classes of continuing professional education programs sponsored by organizations following the guidelines established by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).
The hour equivalency for reporting education and training to professional and state licensing organizations is: ten (10) hours of instruction = 1.0 CEU or one (1) hour of instruction = 0.1 CEU.
The primary purpose of the CEU is to provide a permanent record of the educational accomplishments of an individual who has completed significant non-credit educational and career enhancement experiences. The CEU is also used for licensed professionals such as nurses, engineers, fiduciaries, social workers, etc., who are required to submit proof of continuing education and professional development activity in order to maintain their license.
For organizations to award CEUs, they must follow the criteria and guidelines set forth by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET), 1620 I Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20006.
One CEU is awarded for every ten contact hours of participation; fewer than ten hours are shown as fractional CEUs. Instructors award a grade of “CR” (credit) or “NC” (no credit) on the basis of attendance and satisfactory completion of assignments.
Attendance Requirements to Receive CEU Credit:
Cal State Fullerton Extended Education does not officially give letter grades for non-credit and CEU classes. However, we do understand that some employers require a letter grade for reimbursement. To satisfy that requirement, Cal State Fullerton Extended Education will provide you with a letter grade equivalent by mail approximately 4 weeks after the course end date. To report a missing letter grade equivalent, please e-mail: email@example.com.
The unofficial letter grade will be the only written notification you receive. Unofficial transcripts are available through the TITAN Online. Official transcripts are available through CSUF Admission and Records. See "Transcripts" for more information on the process.
Extension Credit Classes
Extension credit classes have an “X” in front of the class number (e.g., PSYC X405) listed below the course title. Up to 24 Extension credit units may apply as electives toward an undergraduate degree at Cal State Fullerton. With prior approval from a graduate adviser, up to nine units may apply toward a graduate degree. Additional units may apply to graduate degrees requiring more than 30 units. If you have any questions, please consult your graduate adviser.
CSUF has given its faculty the option of using the plus/minus grading system. Instructors use either letter grades or administrative symbols to evaluate and report all course credit work. There are three university grading options:
NOTE: Credits toward a major, minor or general education requirement are to be taken under Option 1. Only 36 "credit/no-credit" (Option 2) units may be applied toward a bachelor's degree.
For additional information regarding grading policies, refer to the CSUF catalog which is available at the Titan Bookstore.
Extension Credits/Student Inquiry Form
If you want to apply extension credits toward a CSUF degree, fill out a Student Record Inquiry form and apply to have the units considered as part of your course work. These forms are available at the Office of Admissions and Records, LH 114.
University Extended Education reserves the right to cancel, postpone or combine classes. Classes may be cancelled if fewer than the required number of students enroll. Every effort will be made to avoid canceling classes. However, University Extended Education receives no support from public funds and the necessity of operating on a self-supporting basis requires registration minimums.
If a class is cancelled, a full refund will be issued. You may transfer the fees from the cancelled class to another class if you do so within two days of the cancellation. In most cases, refunds can be applied toward the cost of a new class.
To be eligible for a certificate in a UEE program, candidates must earn a passing grade in all required classes for that program with verified attendance and successful completion of all assignments, projects and exams.
Some programs have requirements in addition to successful completion of all classes. Before submitting a Study Plan/Request for Certificate, refer back to the Eligibility information for your specific program.
Students are required to complete and submit a Study Plan/Request for Certificate form after they finish their last class in the program. Submission of this form initiates the processing of the certificate. If you need assistance submitting this form online, please call (657) 278-4656.
Please be advised, students will not receive a certificate until after this form is submitted and after University verification of successful completion of all certificate requirements.
Certificates will be mailed to the student after all University approvals have been obtained.
If you need to drop a class, you may do so in person, by phone, fax or mail through the Extended Education registration office, 657.278.2611. Drops are not available online. The day the form is received is the official date of withdrawal and determines the amount of refund, if any. (See "Refunds" for additional information.)

Student I.D. Number: Students receive a campus wide identification number, which is not their social security number. This student identification number will be used to identify all records pertaining to the student. If you have lost or misplaced your CWID, go to https://my.fullerton.edu/CSUFCWID/index.aspx
Social Security Number: Students are required to provide the university with their correct social security numbers (individual taxpayer identification numbers) pursuant to the authority contained in Section 41201, Title 5, California code of Regulations, and Section 6109 of the Internal Revenue Code. The university uses the social security number to identify records pertaining to the student and, if needed, to collect debts owed the university.
Also, the Internal Revenue Service requires the university to file information returns that include the student's social security number and other information. Students who do not have a social security number at the time of enrollment will be required to obtain a social security number and submit it to the university within 60 days. Failure to furnish a correct social security number may result in the imposition of a penalty by the Internal Revenue Service. See "Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997" for additional information.
How do I get a PIN? The first time you register for a class with Extended Education at Cal State Fullerton, you will receive a Personal Identification Number (PIN) by email. Use this number in combination with your student ID to customize your account and gain access to your information on the CSUF Web site (where you can look up grades, units, classes taken, etc.).
UEE students who lose or misplace a PIN, you may go to https://my.fullerton.edu/UEEpin. CSUF admitted students need to contact the Admissions and Records Service Center at LH-114 in person to obtain their PIN.
The American Opportunity Credit and the Lifetime Learning Credit may help you pay for the costs of higher education. If you pay tuition and fees for yourself, your spouse or your dependent you may qualify for these credits. Both credits are subject to income limitations and may be reduced or eliminated based on income.
The American Opportunity Credit is worth up to $2,500 per eligible student. The credit lowers your taxes and is partially refundable up to $1,000 even if you owe zero tax. The credit is available for the first four years of higher education at an eligible college, university or vocational school. An eligible student must be working towards a degree, certificate or other recognized credential education. The student must be enrolled at least half time for at least one academic period during the calendar year. Eligible students can generally claim the costs of tuition and required fees, book and other required course materials. Housing (room & board) costs do not qualify.
The Lifetime Learning Tax Credit is worth up to $2,000 per tax return per year. The credit is nonrefundable. The credit amount is limited to the amount of tax owed. The credit is available for all years of higher education, including courses taken to acquire or improve job skills. You can claim the costs of tuition and fees required for enrollment or attendance, along with amounts you were required to pay for course-related books, supplies and requirement.
Please note taxpayers cannot claim both tax credits for the same student in the same year. You may not claim both credits for the same expense. If eligible, only one tax credit can be used.
Parents or students claiming either tax credit should receive an IRS Form 1098-T, Tuition Statement, from their educational institution. The information being reported to the IRS verifies your enrollment with regard to certain eligibility criteria for the education tax credits and potential deductions for qualified higher education expenses. A copy of Form 1098-T must be furnished to you electronically or mailed. For additional information and frequently asked questions, please visit the SFS website at http://sfs.fullerton.edu/1098t/Default.asp.Further information about these credits and other college tax benefits can be found in IRS Publication 970, Tax Benefits for Education, available at the IRS website, http://www.irs.gov or by calling 1-800-TAX-FORM (800-829-3676).

The California State University, Fullerton is committed to creating an atmosphere in which all students have the right to participate fully in its programs and activities free from unlawful discrimination, harassment and retaliation. Executive Order 1074 Systemwide Policy Prohibiting Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation Against Students AND Systemwide Procedure for Handling Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation Complaints by Students Against the CSU and/or CSU Employees - was established in compliance with the California Equity in Higher Education Act, (Education Code Sections 66250 et seq.), Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, among other applicable state and federal laws.
It is a CSU policy that no Student shall, on the basis of any Protected Status, be unlawfully excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of, any CSU program or activity.

Executive Order 1074, entitled “Systemwide Policy Prohibiting Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation Against Students and Systemwide Procedure for Handling Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation Complaints by Students” is the appropriate systemwide procedure for all complaints of sex discrimination, harassment or violence made by CSU students (including applicants for admission) against the CSU, a CSU employee, a CSU auxiliary or CSU vendor.
Employees and students who violate this policy may be subject to discipline. If discipline of a CSU employee is appropriate under this policy, it shall be administered in a manner consistent with applicable collective bargaining agreements, CSU policies, and provisions of California Education Code Sections 89535 et seq. Discipline of a student shall be administered in accordance with Section 41301 of Title 5, California Code of Regulations.
The CSU is responsible for providing a reliable, prompt and equitable response to a complaint of discrimination. Inquiries concerning the CSU's compliance with these Acts, application of these laws to programs and activities of the CSU, campus policies, complaint resolution and/or appeals processes, and discrimination/harassment complaint filing procedures may be addressed to the CSU officers assigned the administrative responsibility of reviewing such matters or directly with the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights listed below:

Non-credit, Continuing Education Unit (CEU), and Extension credit (e.g. MKT X431) classes are open to the public and most of these classes do not have degree requirements. Enrollment and participation in these types of courses does not constitute admission to California State University, Fullerton as a matriculated student.
There are some non-state-funded (termed “special session programs”) degree programs listed in this catalog that are administered through University Extended Education. Because these programs do not receive state-tax dollars to subsidize tuition costs, tuition prices are similar to those of a private academic institution, and matriculation in these programs is distinctly different from matriculation in one of the University's state-funded degree programs.
Students must apply to these “special session programs” and meet all of the admission requirements as stated for each program by the Academic Unit sponsoring the program. Students earn the same accredited degree from the University as they would from an equivalent state-funded degree offering.
