Each online class that we offer is also available for graduate credit 2 times per year through our partner, Adams State University.  ASU is HLC-accredited, so if you are looking for graduate credits to advance on the salary scale or for relicensure, this may be a good option for you.  Please be sure to check with your school district or current institution to ensure that they will accept ASU credits.


Classes Enrolling for Graduate Credit

Each time we open graduate credit enrollment, all 6 of our full-length courses will be available (does not include Pocket PD courses).  Each course will take place for 5-6 weeks, depending on the credits available.  Classes worth 120 CPU hours are 3 graduate credits (6 weeks in length) and classes worth 80 CPU hours are 2 graduate credits (5 weeks in length).

Graduate Class Format

Our graduate credit offerings for our self-paced classes contain the same information as the CPU versions.  There are some slight, but important, differences to note.  Graduate classes will require more hands-on assignments which are graded by the class instructor.  You will receive personalized feedback for each and every assignment.  Additionally, graduate classes required active discussion board participation and adherence to assignment due dates.  Students may still move through the class at their own pace, but assignments will have strict due date submission times.  Finally, students will need to purchase the recommended books for each course.

Can I take a course I’ve already completed for CPUs?

Unfortunately, no.  Because the course content is the same and you have already been awarded hours towards class completion, you are only eligible to take classes for graduate credit which you have not taken for CPU credit.

Can my school pay for me with a purchase order?

Absolutely, though we will need to receive payment before you can begin your course.  To avoid the time lag, many participants choose to pay for the course and then get reimbursed by the school.  We are happy to support your individual needs.

Will my district accept these credits?

Each district and state has different requirements.  We highly encourage you to contact your individual district human resources office to find out what the regulations are for your school system.  However, we have found that almost everyone accepts these credits as they are provided through an HLC-accredited university.
