Student Learning Center with UGA bannerThe mission of the University of Georgia Griffin Campus Office of Continuing Education is to enrich lives through learning by providing exceptional programs in a stimulating environment with superior service. Continuing Education provides a local hub within the Griffin Community for conferences and events, continuing professional education, and youth programs.

A variety of courses are available, with some offering professional certifications, Professional Learning Units (PLUs), or Continuing Education (CE) credits. The Office of Continuing Education also hosts satellite feeds of live broadcasts from the Institute of Continuing Legal Education so that practicing lawyers may earn CLE credits to meet the requirements of the Bar Association.

In addition to professional courses, the Office of Continuing Education also offers educational opportunities for personal enrichment and development, youth programs, and community outreach opportunities. Conference facilities are also available by reservation.
