Continuing Education Units (CEU)

Some courses offer Continuing Education Units (CEU) which are nationally recognized units of credit for professional development. CEUs are useful where employers, re-licensing agencies and other authorities require a specified number of hours of instruction for career advancement purposes. One CEU is awarded for each ten hour block of instruction. Fewer than ten hours are shown as fractional CEUs. For example, an eight-hour session earns .8 CEUs; a course of 30 hours earns 3.0 CEUs.

Tax Deduction Information

Treasury regulation 1.162-5 permits an income tax deduction for certain educational expenses (registration and tuition fees and cost of travel, meals and lodging) undertaken to: (1) maintain or improve skills required in one's employment or (2) meet requirements of an employer or a law imposed as a condition to retention of employment, job status or rate of compensation. Refer to current IRS regulations. Students are required to provide the University with their correct social security numbers (individual taxpayer identification numbers) pursuant to the authority contained in Section 41201, Title 5, California Code of Regulations, and Section 6109 of the Internal Revenue Code. The University uses the Social Security Number to identify records pertaining to the student and, if needed, to collect debts owed the University. Also, the IRS requires the University to file information returns that include the student's social security number and other information such as the amount paid for qualified tuition, related expenses and interest on educational loans. That information is used to help determine whether a student or a person claiming a student as a dependent, may take a credit or deduction to reduce federal income taxes. Students who do not have a social security number at the time of enrollment will be required to obtain a social security number and submit it to the University within sixty days. Failure to furnish a correct social security number may result in the imposition of a penalty by the Internal Revenue Service.
