The University of Idaho offers a variety of courses for individuals to continue their education, whether in Moscow or not. Continuing education courses fall into three categories:
- Conferences, courses, seminars, or workshops offered by academic departments;
- Credit and non-credit courses offered by the Engineering Outreach Program; and
- Independent Study in Idaho courses. All are explained below.
Courses Offered by Academic Departments
Several academic departments offer conferences, courses, seminars, and workshops throughout the region where students can earn UI credit or Continuing Education Units (CEU) (see regulation D-5 for information on CEU’s). These conferences, courses, seminars, or workshops are taught by UI faculty members or by qualified local instructors who are approved by the respective college in which the course is offered.
Students earning UI credit for these conferences, courses, seminars, and workshops must be admitted by the UI Admissions Office; students earning credit through Independent Study in Idaho or CEU’s do not. In most cases, registration and payment is done at the initial class session of the conference, course, seminar, or workshop. In some cases, advance registration is necessary.
Each college and department is responsible for developing and administering these courses as well as registering students. Those interested in taking such courses should contact the respective college for courses available in their geographic area.
