How do I get my CEU's?

CEU's are recorded through the McKimmon Center’s Office of Professional Development at NCSU. You must sign CEU registration form at the videoconference site. RRS will send a letter to each qualified attendee showing the number of CEU credits earned for that particular teleconference.  After the first videoconference in which you request CEU's, a NC State ID# will be assigned to you. That number will be included in the letter sent to you from RRS.

Please contact the main RRS office for questions about or to obtain information on the videoconferences you attended.

If you require an official University transcript listing of all recent videoconferences and the total number of CEU's earned, a record may be obtained 60 days after a program completion date by writing:
