Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

In compliance with guidelines from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Kilgore College awards Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to students successfully completing various noncredit courses sponsored by the college.  Kilgore College Continuing Education courses enhance employment skills and offer opportunities for personal enrichment. Short-term, non-credit courses help individuals learn and improve skills for both work and leisure. Professional skills courses offer curriculum for licensure and certification exam preparation for improving job efficiency, career advancement or retraining for new careers. Personal enrichment courses augment interests, improve self-image and stimulate lifelong learning enjoyment. The student should not interpret the CEU as a substitute for college credit.  The CEU is a means of recording and accounting for various continuing education activities that a student has completed.

Community Education Courses (Non-Credit)

Kilgore College Community Education courses enhance employment skills and offer opportunities for personal enrichment. Short-term, non-credit courses help individuals learn and improve skills for both work and leisure. For more information, visit the Community Education webpage.
