The Office of Continuing Education

The Office of Continuing Education is an autonomous unit which reports directly to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and is responsible for ensuring that all non-credit educational programs sponsored by the University (held on or off campus) are conducted in accordance with the laws, rules, regulations and policies of the State of Florida, the Board of Governors and the University’s Board of Trustees.

Definition of Continuing Education Programs
