USC: Continuing and Professional Education

Information for specific audiences:


Noncredit Certificate Programs


Noncredit certificate programs document participation in extensive noncredit instruction and professional development activities.

Certificate Programs are composed of multiple CEU issuing Continuing Education activities, which have been purposefully joined together and sequenced to accomplish a comprehensive understanding of a particular subject.

Each module identifies the goals, needs, and target audience of the program and is evaluated to determine learning outcomes.

Individuals who successfully participate in a USC-approved Noncredit Certificate Program may contact our office at any time to verify their record of activity, to request replacement certificates, or to request a transcript letter.



Continuing Education and Conferences offers a number of Professional Certificate Programs.  Visit our Professional Education website to learn more about these professional opportunities.
