NWCCU accreditation standards require the advanced approval and subsequent monitoring of Continuing Education and Special Learning activities, programs, or courses offered for academic credit to ensure the quality and appropriateness of such courses. In addition, accreditation standards require the central coordination of university-wide non-credit activities that award Continuing Education Units or similar designators to support recertification or relicensure.
Academic Affairs oversees this advanced approval process and subsequent monitoring through its designee, the Continuing Education Executive Council. The review process is outlined in the document entitled CE Course Approval Process. Please note that no course may be offered without prior approval.
