“Teaching children is one of the most important jobs in America. The nation’s future depends, in large part, on how well it is done.”
The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education
At The University of Mississippi we share NCATE’s belief that every student deserves a caring, competent, and highly qualified teacher. That’s why the Division of Outreach and Continuing Education is committed to providing excellent programs in the field of education on the Oxford, Southaven, and Tupelo campuses.
The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a nationally recognized measurement of non-credit course work. One CEU (1.0) may be awarded for each ten hours of participation in an approved program. For selected programs, we keep a permanent record of participation, issue a certificate to acknowledge successful completion of the program, and provide official transcripts to you and your employer. All requests for transcripts must be in writing.
