Teacher professional development and certificate renewal credit courses (“contract courses”) are offered to the public school districts. They are designed to train, develop, and/or update the knowledge base, expertise and skills of educators. They are primarily used by the public school sector as a means of certificate renewal for public school teachers in grades K-12.
Professional Development Courses
Professional development courses are offered for graduate credit but are not applicable to the requirements for earning a graduate degree. These courses are used to satisfy the professional development requirements for certificate renewal.
Degree Eligible Courses
These courses satisfy the professional development requirement for certificate renewal and may be applied to some graduate degree programs. The specific academic department and adviser determine the degree eligibility of these courses.
