Additional Credit Options
School districts often have their own partnerships with local colleges and universities where many of the district's teachers pursue graduate degrees. Scholastic U has established additional accreditation partnerships with colleges and universities in connection with Scholastic U district implementations. Please call Customer Service toll-free at (866) 888-5392 if you would like to discuss getting Scholastic U courses accredited by your local college or university.
Effective professional development requires that teachers reflect on their learning and refine their teaching based on that reflection. Teachers enrolled in Scholastic U courses study and apply the research-based components of effective reading instruction and reading strategies. Over a period of several weeks, teachers implement and refine these strategies as they work towards transforming their online coursework into classroom practice. Participants applying for graduate credit for Scholastic U courses must adhere to the following requirements:
- Scholastic U participants will be allowed to enroll in and earn graduate credit for only two Scholastic U courses per semester/quarter (corresponding to university Fall (September-December), Winter/Spring (January-May), and Summer (June-August) semesters/quarters).
- Each Scholastic U course must be completed in no fewer than 5 weeks and no more than 15 weeks.
- Participants must register for graduate credit within 10 days of logging-in to their Scholastic U course.
PLEASE NOTE: Graduate credit requirements and policies may vary by university. Check with the university where you are applying for graduate credit to ensure that you meet its requirements.
