Credit Applicability:
If you wish to apply the credit toward graduate mathematics requirements/elective credits for eligibility to teach college-level mathematics consult with the respective community college/college/university PRIOR to enrolling for credit. It is the discretion of the respective educational institution to apply these credits and the responsibility of the student to verify acceptance of these credits toward this requirement prior to enrollment.

If you wish to apply the credit toward an advanced degree, consult with your academic advisor/college to verify the course will apply to your program prior to enrolling for credit.

If you wish to apply the credit toward certificate renewal, state continuing education requirements and/or lane change requirements, contact your state's Department of Education or community college/college/university to verify the course will count toward licensure/certificate renewal or lane change requirements prior to enrolling for credit. Acceptance of credits varies by state.

Credit Equivalency:                                                                                                                                                                                     Quarter graduate credits transfer to an institution on semester hours according to the institution's semester equivalency. Most colleges/universities convert quarter graduate credits to semester graduate credits using a conversion factor of 2/3, i.e. 3 quarter graduate credits are equivalent to 2 semester graduate credits.

Registration:                                                                                                                                                                                         Registration for all courses is through Adventures In Education.
