Earn Graduate-Level Professional Development Semester Units/Credits For Your Completion of JabuMind Training or Workshops
Please Note: You must wait until you have completed the training and have received your Certificate of Completion from JabuMind before you register for university credits!
Two Simple Steps:
Step 1 – GET TO KNOW THE POLICIES OF YOUR SCHOOL DISTRICT
Get to know the policies of your school district regarding graduate-level professional growth courses, due dates, etc.:
Some districts require prior approval and some don’t. Districts vary in policy regarding whether or not they require official transcripts, and districts have different turn-in dates for salary advancement.
It is your responsibility to know your own district’s policies regarding dates you must submit grade reports for salary advancement and regarding their policy in accepting grade reports versus official transcripts. Please contact your personnel department for information.
Please note: It typically takes 6 – 8 weeks to obtain a transcript from the Registrar, so please plan to register for credit with Courses4Teachers Inc. with this time frame in mind.
What information to provide your district should you need prior approval:
Generally, districts ask for the name of the university, the course title, and course number. If additional information is requested, you may add that all our University of the Pacific courses are Graduate-Level, Professional Development courses, designed as professional growth for teachers. The University of the Pacific is accredited with the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. See the section below General Information Regarding Unit/Credit for more specific information about the type of credit we offer.
Step 2 – REGISTRATION
WE RECOMMEND YOU REGISTER FOR CREDIT NO LATER THAN 12 MONTHS AFTER COMPLETING A JabuMind educational program. However, by special request, we may accept registrations for training completed more than one year later, given you have a Certificate of Completion.
JabuMind offers many different educational trainings/workshops. The trainings are listed below with information on the number of credits you may earn for each educational program.
You may register for credit after completion of each individual module or wait until you have completed all JabuMind Programs.
The registration process is quick and easy.

Credit for each JabuMind course you have completed will require a separate registration and selection of a different course title listed below.

You may not select a title for more than one registration.
If you completed both the JabuMind fundamental mindfulness program and the training series: If you are registering for both the fundamental program and the training series, you will complete two separate registrations – one registration, for two credits, for the 10-week fundamental program and a separate registration for one credit for the training series.
Once you have selected a course title you may NOT use that title again for any future registrations.

General information regarding graduate-level professional development units/credits with the University of the Pacific:
States across the U.S. have different terminology to label this type of graduate-level professional development units/credits.
It can be referred to as “professional growth,” “post bachelor’s credit,” “continuing education,” “graduate units,” “graduate hours,” or “graduate credits.”
Regardless of the terminology, and in light of some confusion with semantics among different states, we want to make it clear that these graduate-level professional development courses are designed for professional growth and are available to teachers across the U.S.
These courses will be listed on a University of the Pacific transcript. These courses are designed for salary advancement and to renew credentials. The courses are not designed towards the attainment of an advanced degree with The University of the Pacific. You are advised to check with your state board or attending university, prior to registering, if you wish to apply these graduate-level professional development units/credits towards the attainment of specialty credentials.
