Continuing Education Credits
K-State Global Campus is authorized to issue continuing education hours from Kansas State University.
The primary purpose of continuing education hours is to provide a permanent record of educational activities for professionals needing contact hours for licensure or accrediting requirements.
Requirements for offering K-State continuing education credits
Programs offered for continuing education hours from Kansas State University verify that:
- educational content is provided by an expert from Kansas State University, or
- content and instructional provider(s) have been reviewed and approved by Kansas State University.
The sponsoring organization must submit the following information to K-State Global Campus prior to the event:
- schedule of events
- program goals and objectives
- curriculum vitas (bios) for all presenters
A content expert from the university will review the content and the qualifications of the instructors/presenters. K-State Global Campus will approve or deny the continuing education for the program. Feedback is provided for the sponsoring agency when continuing education is denied.
In addition to content review, confirmation that the location of the event, if contact hours are offered in conjunction with an in-person program, is ADA compliant is required. The schedule of events is reviewed to calculate the appropriate number of contact hours. K-State continuing education hours are awarded for instructional content only. Instructional hours do not include time involved in coffee breaks, meals, social or promotional activities, or business and committee meetings.
Awarding credit for continuing education activities varies from state to state. It is the responsibility of each professional to verify with their state accrediting agency to see if K-State continuing education hours are accepted.
Are there fees associated with K-State continuing education hours?
