Graduate Credit

About Graduate Credit

Academic Credit is offered for completed coursework through our regionally accredited provider Humboldt State University (HSU). Humboldt State University is the northernmost and westernmost institution in the 23-campus California State University (CSU) system. The additional fee for this credit is separate from the course fees listed within our catalog, and payment is made directly with Humboldt State University once all coursework is completed.

HSU is on a semester based system, and offers either elementary education (EED) or secondary education (SED) credit in the 700 series for coursework completed at Graduatecreditcourses.com. The 700 series semester credit is post-baccalaureate level appropriate for credentialed teachers which do not require admission to a graduate program.

Additional Per Credit Fee for Completed Coursework: $50.00 per semester credit, payable directly to HSU through the secure online HSU/Graduatecreditcourses.com registration portal (see "How the Process Works" below).

Humboldt State University is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), a regional accrediting agency serving a diverse membership of public and private higher education institutions.

Note: Various levels of licenses/certificates within each state may require different types of professional development credit. It is highly recommended that you review your state documentation to verify your license/certificate type, the type of credit that is needed by your state, and the associated professional development options available to you. Teachers should also check with their district office before registering for salary advancement purposes, as guidelines vary from district to district.
