Please note: UO Academic Extension works in partnership with other UO academic departments to approve all credit options. The credit option is recorded on a University of Oregon transcript. The University of Oregon is on a quarterly credit system. Each credit earned is based on a 30-hour credit model per undergraduate credit—10 hours of instructor interaction and 20 hours of independent student engagement. There is an expectation of 40 hours for student engagement per graduate level credit.

Tuition and fees will be approved through Academic Extension.


Academic Extension also provides Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and Professional Development Units (PDUs) for professional development events.

For more information on including these valuable components to your event, please call 541-346-4231, 800-824-2714, or email pde@uoregon.edu
