Continuing Education: Complimentary Social Work CEUs are available for workshops that meet the ND Board of Social Work Examiners criteria for continuing education. All workshops offer Minot State University CEUs based on the number of contact hours. The recording fee for MSU CEUs is $20.00.

 

Hotel Reservations: Some hotel room blocks are held only until one month prior to the event. At that time, rooms are released to the general public and the hotel may not honor the state rate or hold a room for participants in MSU scheduled events. Please make your reservations early and ask for the MSU room block. In most cases, the name of the workshop will help the reservation clerk find the appropriate room block.
