UNIVERSITY CREDIT OPTION
KSWLA 2015 Conference attendees may enroll for one, two, or three credits as follow-up to the conference. These graduate level credits, offered through the University of the Pacific Center for Professional & Continuing Education, are specifically designed to meet the needs of educators for professional upgrading and salary advancement. Intended for graduate participants who are NOT pursuing an advanced degree at University of the Pacific, all participants are responsible to determine acceptability of these credits for their intended use. 

For one credit, the attendee develops and reports (in three or more pages) on a minimum of three follow-up projects, based on conference presentations; six projects in at least six pages, for two credits; and nine projects in at least nine pages, for three credits. Coursework is due within four months following the enrollment date. Teachers may also request extensions of up to a maximum of one full year for unforeseen delays.

An information sheet and enrollment form will be provided at the conference. The tuition is $62 per credit, payable by check or credit card. Registration and payment must be completed and turned in at the KSWLA conference registration table before you leave the conference.

University of the Pacific (California's oldest chartered university, 1851) is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. These courses are letter graded and appear on a permanent official transcript at the University.  Copies are available upon request after course completion.
