Continuing Education Units

Created for Certified Crop Advisors looking to earn Continuing Education Units.

Select courses offered through the Crop Sciences Online Program provide continuing education units (CEUs) for Certified Crop Advisors (CCA). CCAs may enroll in online courses on a non-credit basis to receive continuing education units. Non-credit courses will be taken on a satisfactory or unsatisfactory basis. You must earn a grade of satisfactory.

How to Get Started

How to Register for an Online Course

Students wanting to take classes for non-academic credit register through Illinois Online. Non-academic credit students are assessed on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory basis, and must perfom satisfactory in each course. Classes will count towards CEUs, but do not earn college academic credit and will not appear on a transcript.
