Referenced from State of Washington Office of Public Instruction:
You may request academic credits upon completion of your CE Credits Online course(s).; This must be done within two (2) weeks of your CE Credits Online course completion.
If you will be requesting university credits, it is important you read all the information for your selected university. Some universities require you to obtain a letter grade and others offer both letter grades and a pass/fail option. If you require a letter grade or intend to obtain academic credit from a university requiring a letter grade, you will select that option prior to beginning your course during the enrollment process.
Please keep in mind, some of our university affiliations are quarter based credit systems and some are semester based credits systems. Please verify with your Professional Development department which credit based system they accept.
All courses are eligible for university credit. Please visit University Affiliations for more information. (University Credit fees are not included in the cost of tuition.)
