What are the guidelines for earning college credit?
As of August 2012, the Higher Learning Commission, (HLC) determined 1 college credit requires 15 hours of seat time.
Usually workshops and training will earn .5 credit for a daylong session (5.5 hours of seat time and a two-hour reflection assignment, totaling 7.5 hours). Traditional college-level course work will earn a pre-determined number of credit hours. This is identified by the institution offering the course at the time of enrollment.
What is the price for continuing education credit?
This depends on the organization with whom you've contracted for the workshop, class, training, etc. Contact the organization to determine costs.

How do I pay for my credit?
Visa, Mastercard, AMEX and Discover debit and credit cards are accepted for registration.
Payment is given upon registration through a secure online provider called CashNet. Once payment is submitted, a receipt is sent via email from CashNet through firstname.lastname@example.org. Issues related to payment should be sent to email@example.com.
If you log into the MNU portal and get a "cashier hold" when trying to access grades or acount information, this means your payment hasn't been posted to your student account. It takes no more than 2 weeks to post a payment to a client's account after the client has registered.
How do I request a refund?
A continuing education client may request a refund before the continuing education course grade is posted. An administrative fee of $15 will be deducted from the refund. To request a refund, please send the following information via email to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- client name and address
- name of continuing education course, including course number (CRN)
- date of the course/workshop
- reason for refund
What if I have an unresolved fee balance ?
Any continuing education student with an unresolved fee balance will not be able to enroll in additional continuing education courses until the outstanding balance has been resolved. Please contact the Cashier's Office if you have an unresolbed fee balance by calling 913.971.3504.
