Non-credit Programs

Miami University offers a diverse array of non-credit programs designed to meet the diverse educational needs of individuals seeking professional development, personal enrichment, or skill enhancement. These programs are thoughtfully crafted to provide accessible and flexible learning opportunities for learners of all backgrounds and experience levels. Whether you are looking to acquire new skills, stay current in your field, or explore a new area of interest, non-credit programs offer a dynamic and supportive learning environment. With a commitment to excellence in education, these programs reflect Miami University's dedication to lifelong learning and its mission to empower individuals to reach their full potential.

A non-credit program at Miami University may be held online, on campus, or another location, or as an education abroad/away program. They do not offer academic credit but may offer personal or professional skill improvement, career training, or personal enrichment for students of all ages.

Continuing Education at Miami offers its own non-credit programming, such as our Institute for Learning in Retirement and ed2go. We also support Academic Affairs departments to establish and maintain high-quality programming.

Some non-credit programs are eligible to offer Miami University Continuing Education Units (CEUs), which are typically given in training or job enrichment courses at the rate of one unit for every ten hours of instruction. Continuing Education manages the CEU transcript process.
