Winter Intersession

UEE offers university courses during a three-week session in January. Classes include general education courses and electives. These courses are provided face-to-face, hybrid and online.

Open University

This UEE program opens the doors to university classes for students who are not formally admitted and enrolled in the University. The Open University program serves many purposes: an invitation to try out the University, a resource for those who need a class for personal or professional development, or a second chance for low-GPA students. Students may only enroll on a space-available basis and with the permission of the instructor in any regularly-scheduled course offered by the University. Since enrollment is permitted on a space-available basis, enrollment approval is given on the first day of instruction. If a student wishes to have credit applied toward a degree, a maximum of 24 units is allowable for a baccalaureate degree.

Certificate Programs

UEE provides an array of online certificate programs for professional development in subjects like business, software development, health care, design and more. Upon successful completion of a program, students may be awarded continuing education units.

Teacher Education

For current teachers, UEE offers classes that award the extension credits needed for professional development. These online computer-based instruction courses offer instruction in timely topics by leaders in the education industry.

Contract Courses

Organizations planning continuing education courses using their own instructors may contract with UEE to offer extension credit for approved off-campus courses.
