Social Success in Schools

Earn 3- 6 semester units/credits of University Graduate-Level Professional Development for your completion of each training course offered by Social Success in Schools

Please Note: You must wait until you have completed the Social Success in Schools training before you register!

Two Simple Steps:

Step 1

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 embossed 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 formal 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 and complete your coursework 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

Send in registration form, payment and “Certificate of Course Completion.”

The registration process is quick and easy. The cost is only $99 per graduate-level professional development unit/credit.

Social Success in Schools offers two courses for educators. Each course is available for 3 graduate-level professional development semester credits.

The cost per credit is $99. Thus, for completion of one course you would earn 3  graduate-level professional development semester units/credits and the total would be $297.

If you participated in both courses, you need to register separately for each course. Thus, you will turn in two separate registrations, each registration for 3 units and each at a cost of $297. For each registration you will select a different course title.
