Earning graduate credit requires that teachers meet the requirements outlined in the syllabus approved by participating institutions. Requirements include participating in a positive way in online discussion forums and completing assignments in a timely manner as specified by the syllabus. Graduate credit costs are $155/credit hour (UMKC) or $320/credit hour (UMSL) in addition to the $200 course fee. The same syllabus is used regardless of the institution chosen. Upon successful completion of course requirements, eLearning for Educators will send participants a certificate of completion. Please note if you need an official transcript or a letter grade at the end of a course, you MUST take the course for graduate credit as this is the only way to receive a transcript or letter grade.
