Professional Development Credits
What are professional development credits?
These credits are graduate-level credits and are offered at $60 per credit to teachers, school counselors/social workers and school administrators for the purpose of recertification or salary increases.
The $60 fee is for the transcripted credits only. In some cases, additional fees for the courses will apply.
Professional development credits cannot be used to satisfy degree requirements.
Are these credits eligible for financial aid or payment plans?
No. Because the fees for these credits are already drastically reduced, no financial aid is available and fees are due in total as soon as enrollment is completed.
How do I get a transcript to show the credits that I’ve completed? Is there a fee?
While Boise State University does not automatically send a transcript on your behalf, requesting one is a simple process. Go to our transcript request page and submit the form available there after your course has ended.
You are entitled to one free transcript per term in which you earned professional development credits through Boise State.
I missed the credit registration deadline for my course. What can I do now?
Registration deadlines are very firm, since failure to adhere to them means holding enrollments and grades for teachers who registered on time.
If there were extenuating circumstances that prevented you from completing your registration on time, you may complete Boise State University’s academic appeals process by completing and submitting a written appeal. Appeals will only be accepted for courses offered within the last 12 months.
For instructions on completing this process, please contact the program coordinator at (208) 426-3713 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m enrolled in a professional development certified course. How do I register for credit?
You will receive credit registration instructions from the instructor or coordinator of the course containing a registration link. This link will remain open until the date specified in the email and will provide a simple, one-stop register-and-pay process for you to complete.
Who can I contact with additional questions about registering for credits or technical issues?
