The heading under which classes are listed, i.e., Anthropology, Art, etc., indicates the academic department that has approved the courses and the discipline in which credit is granted. In some instances, courses are cross-referenced to other disciplines but credit is allowed only in the department carrying the detailed listing.
The value is in quarter units. When the designation CEU is included, the course offers Continuing Education Units. Where no figure is given, the course is noncredit.
UCR Extension uses the following conversions:
While requirements vary from program to program, generally, some coursework taken at other accredited institutions may be transferred into certificate or sequenced course programs if it is equivalent in content and value. All transfer requests must be in writing and must include official transcripts. All coursework and units accepted for transfer are subject to the approval of the academic director of the department offering the program.
Continuing Education Units (CEU) provide a cumulative record of noncredit study at the post-secondary level. They are useful where employers, relicensure agencies and other authorities require a specified number of hours of instruction for career advancement purposes, and where noncredit study is acceptable.
