CE Admission

Welcome to Hawthorn University’s Admission Information page. If you are unsure if online learning fits your personal education needs, please feel free to take the following brief survey.

Continuing Education Courses (CEUs)

Students interested in taking courses listed in the Continuing Education area will earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) in those courses that begin with the prefix CE. 

Applicants interested in the Continuing Education (CE) courses are required to fill out demographic information on the application, and submit a photo ID. There is no application fee for any course in the CE program. Written permission for a legal guardian is required for admission of a person under legal age. 

Non-Matriculating Students

Students who want to take individual courses from any of Hawthorn's programs or from the Holistic Nutrition - Elective Course listings under Continuing Education are considered non-matriculating students and are subject to the same admission requirements as their program of interest. For example, students who want a master's level course must show proof of an earned bachelor's degree.  Students must also submit a photo ID.  Students interested in taking individual courses in the WTNC and MSTN programs must be members of the Westion A. Price Foundation.

Should a non-matriculating student decide to enroll into a program at a later date, a new program application must be submitted along with all required documentation for admission into the program. A $60 application fee (non-refundable) will be charged. For additional information, questions, or assistance contact Kathleen McDermott, Director of Admissions & Student Management, at  or call Kathy at 707-986-4153, Ext. 401 during office hours M-F, 9 am - 5 pm ET.
