Virginia Commonwealth University CEUs

For professionals in education, psychology, counseling, and other areas, CEUs will be available through Virginia Commonwealth University. Although not equivalent to VCU undergraduate or graduate credits, CEUs are recorded on a VCU certificate and a transcript that can be obtained without charge as often as requested. CEUs are accepted by many state agencies and professional organizations as evidence of contact or clock hours toward certificate renewal.

Individuals should contact their employers and agencies prior to coming to the conference to determine whether CEUs are applicable to their specific situation.
