Continuing Education

Southern University at Shreveport is dedicated to presenting dynamic, flexible, and preeminent programs to the community and throughout its service area.

The University is totally committed to lifelong learning that goes beyond initial career preparation, traditional concepts, of full-time study, and degree completion. Continuing Education encourages educational renewal. Further, the University seeks to provide life-long learning for people of all ages and ethnicity to develop personal and professional potential, upgrade job-related skills and prepare for informed participation in the civic, cultural, and political life of the community.

The Department of Continuing Education offers lifelong learning opportunities for the community and individuals interested in enhancing their quality of life through professional, cultural and other leisure learning enrichment opportunities which allow for personal growth and enjoyment. Programs and/or classes support learning opportunities for the citizens of our service area.

The Continuing Education Program is devoted to offering critically needed training that leads to immediate employment according to the needs of business, industry, and government agencies. Course offerings/program offerings lend themselves to training for workers for immediate start-ups in an effort to improve deficient basic academic skills and condensed block-time classes rather than the traditional semester schedule.

Southern University at Shreveport's Continuing Education Program will award continuing education units (CEU's) to individuals who participate in approved, non-credit activities administered by the University. One (1) CEU is equal to ten (10) contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction. In no instance should the award of CEU's be equated with college credit applicable toward a degree.

Classes are offered during the day, evenings, and weekends and will be provided when a reasonable number of students are enrolled. Non-credit courses are opened to interested individuals without regard to the eligibility standards for admission to regular college-credit programs.
