Scholastic RED offers several online professional development programs in collaboration with the University of San Diego. Currently, participants can earn either two or three graduate units of credit, depending on the specific course. USD expects participants to invest 15 hours for each credit earned by studying, testing, reflecting, and implementing ideas contained in the lessons. With this in mind, we anticipate it would require a minimum of five weeks of study and participation to complete each course.
USD's policy is to release transcripts within 48 hours of receiving a score from Scholastic RED, but in no case will the transcript be released before the five-week restriction has elapsed. Both Scholastic and USD are intent on assuring that the learner is able to maximize the ideas gained by meaningful involvement in the program. By registering for credit, participants agree to the expectations indicated above. Finally, participants must register within 10 days of starting their Scholastic RED course and complete the course in no more than 15 weeks. If you have further questions, please contact Dr. Jim Olivero at JLO004@aol.com.To register, go to this secure online registration site by clicking on or cutting and pasting the link below to your browser:
