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

Please complete the CEU application form. Once received a member of the Online Programs team will contact you to send more information on the program.

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.

Students wanting to take courses to earn CEUs and academic credit register through Illinois Online.

Students taking courses in the the Online Master’s Degree Program or earning a Professional Development Certificate can also apply for CEUs.


If taking a class solely for CEU credit, tuition and fees are $500 per course. If enrolled in the Online Master's Program, Professional Development Certificate, or taking a course for academic credit see Illinois Online for tuition and fee information.
