CCE General Policies



While many Continuing Education courses have special attendance requirements, 80 percent

attendance is the general requirement for Continuing Education if the individual is to receive

a Certificate of Completion from the College. Students should take note of attendance

requirements upon beginning a course of instruction since requirements are announced at the

beginning of every course.



A student may not audit a course or any portion thereof without first paying the entire tuition

and fee.


Continuing Professional Education (CPEs) 

Palo Alto College is approved by the State Board for Educator Certification to provide

CPE activities to Educators for certificate renewal purposes. All Texas Educators who

hold a Standard Certificate must renew it every five (5) years. As a condition of renewal,

superintendents and principals will be required to complete 200 clock hours of CPE, and all

other educators must complete 150 hours.


Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and Course Certificates 

Palo Alto College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award

CEUs for some courses. Satisfactory completion of ten clock hours of qualified instruction

equals 1.0 CEUs. Transcripts listing CEU credits satisfactorily completed will be available upon

request. Otherwise, a certificate of completion is awarded upon course completion.


Corporate Education (CE) to Credit 

CE students will have the option to earn college credit for qualifying CE training which will

lead towards an Associate’s degree at Palo Alto College. A six-hour academic requirement

must be met before the CE training can be transferred into college credit.


Course Cancellations 

Courses are subject to cancellation if the predetermined minimum enrollment is not attained.

If a class is cancelled, every effort will be made to notify students by phone prior to the first

class meeting. A 100% refund will be granted or the student may request to be transferred

to another available class. Due to low enrollment, Continuing Education reserves the right to

cancel classes, or change times, dates, and locations, or course offerings. Students will be

notified whenever possible, by phone, of cancellation, date changes, and time changes.



Students taking less than 40 clock hours per semester: Continuing Education students

enrolling in non-credit courses of less than 40 clock hours of instruction are allowed to park

in designated “student parking” free of charge, by properly displaying a temporary parking

permit obtained from the ACCD Department of Public Safety located in the Student Center,

Room 127B. The student must show receipt information indicating payment of tuition to the

Department of Public Safety.

Students taking more than 40 clock hours per semester: Continuing Education students

enrolling in non-credit courses of more than 40 clock hours of instruction must purchase the

ACCD parking permit from the Bursar’s Office in the Student Center, Room 130.


Student Age 

Professional Development and Continuing Education classes are primarily designed to

serve adult learners. Students between the ages of 15 and 17 must have written parental

permission and 13 -to 14- years-old students must have a parent enrolled in the same class.

Some courses are designed especially for younger students, older students, or for a specific

educational level. Requirements will be noted in the course description.
