NYSSSWA 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 whether LIVE and/or ON-DEMAND:

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.

Late Fee:  After March 1, 2021, ADD $5


Cancellation Fee:  Since the conference is now virtual and you will be able to access sessions for up to 2 months, there will be no refunds for cancelling.
