The office of Continuing & Professional Education provides innovative and engaging noncredit learning experiences that transform the lives of individuals, organizations and communities in Arizona and around the world. We are a flexible and collaborative partner for UA faculty and staff who are interested in developing noncredit continuing and professional education programs.

“Nontraditional” Is Our Traditional

As the landscape of higher education changes, universities are seeking ways to expand their reach beyond the traditional student population. Noncredit continuing and professional education programs are an opportunity to engage adult learners, mid-career professionals, and those who might not be ready for a four-year degree (yet).

What We Can Do for UA Faculty and Staff

We can provide end-to-end noncredit course development support, including:

  • Course design. Whether you have a fully designed course or just an idea, we can work with you to develop an engaging noncredit program.
  • Online course development. We collaborate with the Office of Digital Learning to provide exceptional curriculum and instructional design support for online class development. We can help you create a new online course or convert an in-person course into an online format. And using the community D2L learning management system (LMS) means students can take the course at their convenience, while you can easily monitor their progress.
  • Badges and certificates. Participants can earn credentials such as digital badges, certificates of completion, continuing professional education units (CPEs) or continuing education units (CEUs).
  • Registration management and support. We work with you to ensure the right people have access to your course at the right time.
  • Marketing. We work with you to develop an integrated marketing plan tailored to your program’s needs.
  • Project management. We coordinate all the moving parts to ensure efficient and timely production and delivery of your course.
