     Our courses earn 3 Graduate Level Semester credits or 4.5 Graduate Level Quarter credits each by the Augustana College, MidAmerica Nazarene University.

  2.  Are credits in your program transferable to the degree program in which I am currently enrolled?

     Our  courses are intended to fulfill requirements for licensure renewal and for lane change when the student has obtained prior approval from his/her district office. Our various educational partners have different guidelines as to the possibility of transferring credits to their degree programs. Please contact us for information regarding the specific school in which you are interested.

  3.  How do I receive a transcript  upon completion of my course?

a. Augustana College

   Grades are obtained by contacting the college directly at:

  4.  If I apply with another person by the early bird deadline, can I receive two discounts?

No, a person may not combine discounts. Therefore only one discount would apply.

 

  5. What if I sign up for one class and pay the regular price, and afterwards decide to take another class from you. How does this affect the price?

You would receive the multi-section discount retroactively; instead of having $20 taken off your second course, we would deduct a total of $40.

 

  6.  How do I know that one of your courses may be applied for either continuing education credits toward relicensure or for a lane change on the salary schedule of my school district?

You need to receive prior approval for either of these from the  superintendent of your school district before registering for one  of our courses.

 

  7.  What if I need proof of the hours that I attended class for purposes of relicensure?

    Every student receives a certificate of participation showing 72 clock hours the last day of class. Further down the line, if you have taken the course for credit, you will receive a grade report, after which you may request a transcript from the appropriate university showing the credits and grade that you earned.
