Yes, University of the Pacific is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
What California refers to as PDUs (Professional development credits) are often labeled as CEUs (Continuing Education units) or “Semester Hours” in school districts on the east coast. Regardless of the label, we are speaking of the same graded, graduate-level courses, that require 15 hours per semester unit/credit, and that is required for salary advancement.
You have two options:
- You may meet with a Grader virtually or in person
- Email your coursework to our Courses4Teachers office
Courses4Teachers grades your coursework and approves what you have logged to verify you’ve met the total number of hours required and accepted curriculum development activities. As long as you have been charged for your units/credits, Courses4Teachers then enters your grade in the University of the Pacific’s grading portal. This will generate an Unofficial Transcript that will be mailed to you directly from the university.
After you receive a “Good News” email from our office, letting you know your grade(s) has been posted in the University of the Pacific’s system, you may order an Official Transcript. Instructions for ordering an Official Transcript will be included in the “Good News” email. To view more information, click here.
The cost to order an Official Transcript is $7.25 for the first copy and $5 for each additional copy. Should you need an Official Transcript overnight, the cost is an additional $32.00. Transcripts may be mailed to you personally and/or directly to your school district.
NOTE: The university does not offer electronic copies of their transcripts.
Unofficial Transcripts are printed and mailed to your home address for your personal record (at no cost). Official Transcripts from the University of the Pacific are mailed in a sealed-stamped envelope to the address of your choice.
Some districts will accept Unofficial Transcripts as sufficient documentation to meet their requirements. However, most school districts will only accept Official Transcripts. It is your responsibility to know what is accepted by your district.
