- A Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a nationally-recognized unit of credit for recording satisfactory completion of certain continuing education courses. One CEU represents ten contact hours of instructions. Completion certificates may be awarded to students who satisfactorily complete a continuing education course.

- Normally students under 16 years of age may take continuing education courses with the written approval of a parent or guardian. Some courses are not available to minors due to South Carolina laws or due to the discretion of the instructor (primarily for safety concerns).
