In order to receive New York Approved CEUs, you must:

  • Review SSWAA’s Brochure for NYSSSWA approved CEUs.  (You can select and attend any workshops, but will not obtain CEUs for any “Unapproved” sessions.)
  • Register with SSWAA for the conference.
  • Register with NYSSSWA for New York CEUs.   
  • Sign in and sign out of each  NYSSSWA approved workshop/keynote presentation at the beginning and end of the session,
  • Complete all the Workshop/Keynote Evaluations  (DO NOT USE RESULTS AT HAND application for NY CEUs.)
    • Since all evaluations are linked for easier completion, have your list of attended workshops available to help you navigate through the forms.

CEU Registration Rates:

As you may know, the New York State Education Department has very specific criteria that must be met in order for a presentation to be approved as well as for the release of CEU Certificates. As a result, a lot of time is required to vet and process CEUs. Due to these administrative costs, NYSSSWA will be charging the following for the provision of New York CEUs:

NYSSSWA Members: $30

NYSSSWA Non-Members:  

  • NYSSSWA Membership plus CEU fee: $90   (We hope you will take advantage of this savings and become a NYSSSWA Member–normally $85!)
  • CEU Fee Without Membership: $60.
