Clock Hours and CEUs

General Education Teacher Clock Hours

Teachers who would like to earn Clock Hours with the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction for their Continuing Education class can do so by contacting our Program Specialist, Briana Nino, cteprogram@seattlecolleges.edu, after completing your class.

General CEUs

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to verify your attendance in a class. This is often required of individuals employed in organizations that pay for continuing education or professional development. Students must attend all class sessions and be attentive and engaged for the entire class session to receive CEU verification. You are required to complete and return a CEU Request Form provided upon registration to the Continuing Education office. Once the class is completed and the form is received, you will be sent a Certificate of Attendance showing the start and end dates and awarding you CEUs. Students must register each quarter in which they wish to earn CEUs.

Au Pair CEUs

People employed as au pairs in the U.S. are often required to take continuing education classes as part of their employment agreement.

You will receive 1 CEU for every 10 hours of class (1CEU=10 hours). For example, 20 hours of class earns you 2 CEUs. You must attend all class sessions and be attentive and engaged for the entire class session to receive CEU verification. 

Upon successful completion of a class, you can receive a Certificate of Attendance (showing start and end dates, total hours, and CEUs) which you can provide to your employer after you have completed and returned the CEU Request Form to the Continuing Education Office.

You must register for CEUs for Au Pairs each quarter to receive CEU Certificates of Attendance. Click on this link to download the CEU Request Form.

Earn Continuing Education Units or CEUs to verify the completion of a class. Are you an Au pair? Do you need to get documentation for your employer that you completed a class this quarter? To receive your Clock Hours form, you must first register for the Continuing Education Units (CEU) Fee.

You are required to complete and return a CEU Request Form with the instructor’s signature to the Continuing Education office within 30 days of completing your class. Once received, we will provide you with a letter verifying your attendance and awarding your CEUs. Students must register each quarter in which they wish to earn CEUs. Please contact Southced@seattlecolleges.edu for further information.

CEUs are calculated by the total hours of the class and awarded based on student attendance and participation. For example, if the class is 30 hours then your CEU letter will reflect 30 hours or 3.0 CEUs. However, if you have to miss a class due to illness or vacation, then we will deduct the hours from your total hours/CEUs.

Note: Our classes do not provide academic credit towards a degree. Also, free workshops or classes are not eligible for CEUs.
