Academic Coursework

Academic Coursework Guidelines

*Those using UTRID as a CMP sponsor have responsibilities they must adhere to in order to get CEUs for themselves or for workshop participants. Failure to adhere to these responsibilities or to follow UTRID’s guidelines may lead to the inability to get CEUs.*

  2. Course syllabus
  3. Official transcript showing a grade of “C” or better was obtained in that class.
  4. Payment if required

The CMP Sponsor will work with attendees to determine the following:

  1. Number of CEUs
  2. Type of CEU – Professional Studies or General Studies (a written statement may be required if trying to get PS for a class that does not fit the PS definition as set forth by RID.)

Students have the following responsibilities:
