Extension Course Proposal Request Form

When an instructor wishes to create a new UC Merced Extension course, a course proposal should be submitted to the Extension Dean for approval. The course proposal will first be reviewed by Extension staff. If there are questions regarding the proposal, the originating instructor will be contacted as soon as possible. Once the Extension Dean approves the course, and obtains any additional required approvals, the instructor will be notified.

CEUs/Professional Development: Continuing Education Units (CEUs) represent a measure of contact time and participation suitable for seminars, short workshops and other types of courses and programs that do not require participants’ work be evaluated, or “graded”.


Non-Credit/Personal Enrichment: Professional, personal, and cultural enrichment learning opportunities. Participation does not result in a student record. (i.e. Master Gardener Series)
