Auditing Courses for Enrichment or Continuing Education Credit

Most courses at Bexley Seabury are open to persons who do not require graduate academic credit, such as auditors seeking enrichment and those seeking to satisfy CEU requirements. These students are expected to read assigned materials to participate in class discussions. Submission of assignments is not required. The instructor may, but is not required to, read or respond to assignments voluntarily submitted by those not taking the course for academic credit.

Students who require a CEU certificate should contact the Registrar, Susan Quigley. The fee for the certificate is $25.00.
