CEUs for Academic Coursework

STEP 1. Verify CEU Eligibility

Academic Course must be taken at an institution accredited by the Council for High Education Accreditation(CHEA). You need to verify your institution’s accreditation.  Once on the webpage, scroll to the bottom of the screen and click “I Agree.” Then enter your institution’s information.

STEP 2. Contact SCRID for Sponsorship

This is to secure an agreement to process the paperwork for the course.  Be sure to discuss the Content Area for which you are applying (Professional Studies or General Studies) and how many CEUs will be earned.

The course does not have to pertain strictly to interpreting.  It can be a course in Linguistics, Business, Psychology, Social Work, etc.  As long as the course is educationally beneficial to you as an interpreter, it can earn CEUs for you.

1.5 CEUs per credit hour for a course taken in a semester session.

1.0 CEUs per credit hour for a course taken in a quarter session.

 The course must be successfully completed during your current cycle.


STEP 3. Submit Payment

If you are a SCRID or RID Region V Affiliate Chapter member, the cost of each Academic Course is $25.00*, upon membership verification.  If you are not a member, the cost is $50.00** per course. **This is non-refundable**             

Checks also accepted. Use the mailing address found at the bottom of this website.

Please note that payment must be received before CEUs can be awarded.

Note:  SCRID is audited by RID to determine if RID’s procedures/guidelines are adhered to for approving workshops/events.  Failure to pass the audit would result in SCRID losing sponsorship.  We ask you keep this in mind as we work together to gather information for sponsorship.
