University Credit for Scholastic U Professional Development Courses
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 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 less than 5 weeks and no more than one calendar year.
- Participants must register for graduate credit within 10 days of enrolling in their Scholastic U course.
Credit requirements and policies may vary by university. Check with the university where you are applying to ensure that you meet its requirements.
