About Us

UTRGV Continuing Education (CE) extends the education resources of the university to best meet the learning needs of the Rio Grande Valley. A component of the Division of Research, Graduate Studies & New Program Development, the Office of Continuing Education provides individuals the opportunity to enroll in courses for professional development, continuing education, test preparation and personal enrichment.

Admission to the university is not a requirement since the courses are non-credit and primarily used for professional improvement and certification purposes.

Our mission is to facilitate lifelong learning by extending the academic resources of the university through high quality, non-credit education services designed to enhance professional development and personal enrichment of the diverse population locally, nationally and internationally.

Through its commitment to diversity, integrity and high quality education services, the CE will:
  • Promote a high standard of excellence in instruction.
  • Serve the professional development and continuing education needs of the diverse populations in the region.
  • Be recognized as the institution of choice for innovative continuing education programs in the region.
