Non-Credit Classes

women studying in library

We offer a selection of classes designed to fit your schedule, with your budget in mind. Our non-credit classes begin at a rate of $99.00. In addition to gaining professional skills, this is  a perfect opportunity to acquire recertification points, professional development credits, or continuing education units (CEU’s).

Longwood University’s Professional Studies office utilizes the descriptions for Renewal Options in the Virginia Licensure Renewal Manual to suggest appropriate professional development points to school divisions. Please validate recertification points with your Human Resource Department before registering for non-credit classes.

Note:   Non-credit classes cannot be transferred as for-credit courses at any time.
