Registration Information

Graduate Professional Development Credits

If you're obtaining credit for teacher relicensing in a state other than North Dakota, please contact your local teacher licensing board prior to registration. They will determine if the professional development credit/clock hours meet your licensing renewal needs.

  • Professional development credits, or non-degree graduate credits, are earned by K-12 educators for re-licensing and salary-lane changes.
  • Professional development credits are approved by academic colleges and departments at the University of North Dakota.
  • One credit is awarded for every 15 hours of instructional time.
  • At UND, professional development credits cannot be applied toward degree programs.
