Continuing Education/Public Service

As a member of the University System of Georgia, North Georgia College & State University embraces its responsibility of service to the Northeast Georgia community as an integral part of the overall university mission. The goal of this service is greater public accessibility to North Georgia College & State University. Continuing Education and Public Service is the University's outreach effort to deliver and share its resources and expertise with the general population, business, industry, associations, governmental groups, and others in order to enhance the intellectual capital of all those in need of development and lifelong learning.

Continuing Education offers an array of non-credit educational programs (short courses, seminars, workshops, lectures, camps, etc.) that focus on professional development and personal enrichment. The continuing education approach to learning makes it possible for adults to learn in an informal and non-competitive environment where interest is the primary consideration.

The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) represents ten contact hours of participation in an organized activity under reasonable sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction. Individuals who successfully complete the course requirements will receive individual CEU's. The CEU cannot be converted into academic credit.

Various university cultural activities are made available to the public. Through its H. M. Stewart Center for Continuing Education, the university also provides administrative and auxiliary support for educational efforts by non-university groups and assists in public use of university facilities and services.
