K-12 Educators and Counselors

Lindenwood Professional and Continuing Education (PACE) in cooperation with school districts, select educational agencies, and recognized experts in their field, provides graduate credit opportunities for K-12 Educators and Counselors in a flexible manner and at an affordable price.

Graduate credit hours earned through K-12 professional development courses and workshops are not transferrable into a degree program at Lindenwood. However, these hours are generally used to meet school district requirements for professional development (plus hours), and state licensure renewal requirements. Check with your individual school district, state board, or institution for applicability. Graduate credits are nonrefundable.

Academic Terms for K-12 Educators and Counselors: Students are encouraged to register for graduate credit well before the semester ends. Courses available in one semester may not be available in the next, unless they are rolling courses like ASCA U, LETRS, and Credit4Teachers. 

To avoid transcript delays, we encourage you to register at least 15 days before the semester ends.
