  • What is the difference between Continuing Education Units (CEU) and Continuing Professional Education Hours (CPE)?

    The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a nationally recognized uniform unit of measurement of individual participation in non-credit continuing education. One Continuing Education Unit equals ten hours of instruction.

    Continuing Professional Education Hours (CPE) can only be awarded by providers authorized by the State Board for Educator Certification, and are equal to the actual instruction time. A 30-hour course, for example, would award 3.0 CEUs or 30 CPEs. The Glasscock School of Continuing Studies is recognized as a provider of both CEUs and CPEs.

    SBEC Continuing Professional Education Provider Number 500571.

  • What supplies should I bring to the course?

    You may refer to your subject-specific course description for items if requested by your instructor. Course cost of attendance includes all supplies and/or textbooks that you will need for your course unless specifically stated otherwise.

    For Educator Workshops
    We recommend comfortable attire and walking shoes, as trainings typically involve walking around Rice University's campus. Science teachers must follow Rice University's lab safety rules by wearing closed-toe shoes (no sandals), long pants or skirts, laboratory coats, and goggles during all lab activities.
