University Credit

Graduate-Level University Semester Credit for Educators like you!

TPRS Books & the University of the Pacific

TPRS Books and the University of the Pacific take pride in working together to make available the opportunity for educators to earn graduate-level university semester credits/units. We understand that being an educator takes time, energy and a lot of dedication so we’ve attempted our best to make this process affordable, practical and at the same time rewarding. For only an additional cost of $62 per credit, we can help you meet your salary advancement and/orrecertification requirements. All University of the Pacific courses are graduate-level semester, professional development courses, designed as professional growth for educators. The University of the Pacific is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and all courses will appear on an Official Transcript from the Registrar’s Office at UOP. Attending our  TPRS workshop sessions are a pre-requisite to our course enrollment. Some school districts may require pre-approval prior to enrollment. It is your responsibility to know your district’s policies.

Earn Graduate-Level University Semester Credit by attending our National TPRS Conference!

Credit Requirements for National Conference

Each graduate-level  semester credit/unit requires 15 hours of  attendance/participation.  Thus,  you are able to earn up to 1, 2  or 3 graduate-level semester credits/units by attending the workshop sessions (pre-conference workshops included) at our 2017 National TPRS Conference! To qualify for enrollment, develop a log of hours and a summary for each workshop or session that you attended. 

Log of Hours 

Each graduate-level credit will require 15 hours of involvement. Creating your own log will allow you to document all the sessions that you attended at our national conference. Your log must be specific and include dates with times, sessions attended, as well as the total amount of hours of involvement (see log example). Along with your log, provide a summary for each workshop/session. Click here to view a brief sample of an expected summary.

IMPORTANT: Your log and summaries must be saved as a PDF, JPEG or Word Document.
