Many of the programs at The College qualify for insurance Continuing Education. Please refer to the grids below, organized by program at The College, to obtain recent CE credit information by course. Understand that this information changes frequently, and while we will do our best to provide current data, it is your responsibility to verify CE credits with your state.
- If you would like to order a duplicate certificate because you have misplaced the original.
- If you require your continuing education credits to be reported immediately outside of our normal processing time of 7-10 business days.
- If continuing education credit was never requested at the time of registration and you now require immediate CE processing due to licensure renewal.

In order to more accurately comply with state requirements for processing CE, The American College takes the following approach:
- All students are required at the time they enroll in a course to request state CE for processing and provide their state license number.
- When CE is requested and a passing grade is achieved, CE credit will be reported and filing fees paid in accordance with state regulations. If a student is late in requesting that CE be filed and the state charges a late processing fee as a result, that fee will be passed on to the student.
- When CE is declined, completion of the course will not be reported to the state, and CE certificates will not be issued to the student.

- If you are currently enrolled in courses and want CE reported to your resident state but did not select CE when registering, please contact:
Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. E.T.
The American College's Guidelines for Exam Proctors:
The American College requires that every examination be proctored by a "disinterested third party who is not a relative, an immediate supervisor nor employee of the producer and one that has no financial or personal interest in the outcome of the examination." States having additional or alternate requirements are noted when accessing the Exam Proctor link below. Students must follow all posted guidelines regardless of the reason for taking the course.
Click on the link below to access your state's proctor affidavit. Students will be able to access the Exam Proctor link at the Pearson-Vue testing center’s Administration Desk for your convenience on the day of the exam. All affidavits must be faxed to The American College CE Department (fax: 610-526-1402) no later than the day following the exam. State insurance continuing education will not be granted if your monitor/proctor affidavit is not received in a timely manner. Students who fail to return the appropriate affidavit will have to take the exam again if CE is desired. If your state is not listed, you do not have to fill out a proctor affidavit but you do need to select a proctor in accordance with The American College's guidelines.
Please note: Pearson-Vue will act in lieu of the state required affidavit for the following states:
AL, CO, GA, PA, AZ, CT, MA, VT, WV, NC, OH, IA, MT, MI, HI and NY.
This means that students who take their exam at a Pearson-Vue testing center only for any of the above states will not have to submit a signed Proctor Affidavit back to the Continuing Education Department.
The remaining Proctor Affidavit states MUST have their affidavit signed at Pearson-Vue’s testing center and have it faxed to 610-526-1402 within 24-hours. These states are as follows:
MS, SC, AR, FL, MO, NE, VA, NV, IN, WI, DC
Any student taking their exam outside of a Pearson-Vue testing center MUST have the Proctor Affidavit signed and returned regardless of the location for ALL affidavit states listed on the Exam Proctor page.
