SIU subscribes to and supports the standards and criteria established by the National Task Force on the Continuing Education Unit (CEU). In 1974, Continuing Education (previous name of Conference and Scheduling Services), in cooperation with SIU Carbondale's Admissions Office, established a plan and procedure for the offering of CEUs and the first CEUs were recorded that year. Since then, the program has been revised and improved on a continuing basis.

These procedures have been prepared for use by those academic departments and other units on the Southern Illinois University Carbondale campus that plan to offer CEUs to participants in continuing education programs. They are based both on the use of the CEU in comparable higher education institutions and on the decentralized nature of this campus. Information on CEU awards for those participating in courses on the Internet is also included.
