If Temple College cancels a class, a 100% refund will be granted. A class is cancelled when insufficient enrollment occurs.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are nationally recognized to record satisfactory completion of certain approved occupationally related programs. Generally one CEU is awarded for each 10 contact hours of instruction included in a specified continuing education program or activity. Successful completion is grade and attendance-based. Eighty percent attendance is required for most classes, but some require 100 percent attendance. Individuals who register for and successfully complete our courses are awarded CEUs.

Did you know that you can take some college credit courses as continuing education credit (CEU) classes? These are called mirror classes and provide a number of benefits for those who want to build their work-related knowledge and skills without working on a degree plan.
