This site is your portal to finding the offices and services you need to succeed as a continuing education student at Seattle Pacific University.

From data analytics to cybersecurity, faith, and business to H.R., our ever-growing list of continuing education courses equip students to elevate their career and make a mark on the world—for good. Never stop learning with Seattle Pacific University.


When you locate a course of interest, you will find information in the course description online regarding registering for that particular course. Be certain you view the correct offering of that course, as we often have multiple offerings of the same course throughout the academic term. Be sure to carefully review how to register for your course and what the refund would be (if any) should you choose to withdraw. Some courses may be offered in partnership with outside educational organizations, although all courses offered through CPE are fully accredited by the University.

Unless otherwise indicated, you must complete your distance learning course within one year. If you do not complete a yearlong distance learning course within one year of registration, you will receive a permanent “NC” on your transcript, which means “No Credit.” The “NC” does not affect your GPA.

Policies and Procedures

Continuing Education students may take no more than 60 credits in an academic year (July 1 - June 30). Any credits taken over this limit will be disallowed. While formal admission is not required for you to begin taking classes at SPU, if you are interested in pursuing a specific degree or an endorsement, we encourage you to apply for admission as soon as possible.

5000 Level courses and/or Continuing Education Units are not eligible for loan deferment because they are in a year-long term, and part-time or full-time status cannot be calculated.

Distance learning courses appear on your transcript with the date the grade is posted. Please allow six weeks after submitting your finished course for the course to be graded by the instructor. Grades will be posted within 1-2 business days once Seattle Pacific University has received them. Please keep this grading-time allowance in mind if you need transcripts for salary increases or certification renewals.

After your course has concluded, you will receive a feedback form by email within 30 days of grade posting. Please take the time to complete the online survey for each course you take. Your feedback is both valuable and appreciated.
