    School District Professionals

    School districts, principals, in-service and professional development coordinators who would like to offer in-service courses for credit may be able to offer graduate credit to their teachers through Colorado State University Pueblo. Graduate credit offered under this option is available only to licensed teachers, principals, or other school administrators.

    Due to the large variety of in-service training programs provided by schools, CSU Pueblo Extended Studies does not have a list of pre-approved, in-service courses or courses for re-certification offered through Extended Studies. Each course is evaluated individually. 

    A course syllabus must be provided at the time of the formal request for credit. The syllabus must include:

    1. Course title
    2. Course credits
    3. Student Learning Outcomes (SLO)
    4. Course description
    5. Schedule of meeting days/time

    After all requested materials are received, they are evaluated by the Associate Dean of the Teacher Education Program or other appropriate department Deans (ART, MUSIC, etc.). Once approved, the school or district representative will be contacted.

    Instructors for these courses are not issued a CSU Pueblo contract and the courses are taught at no expense to CSU-Pueblo. The course is taught on either a volunteer basis or the instructor is paid through another source.

    Upon course and instructor approval, each school or district course coordinator will be provided with course registration forms and grade submission sheets. The forms may be duplicated locally if necessary to register students.

    The registration forms must be completed as indicated and returned to the CSU Pueblo Extended Studies office by the established date(s). Forms submitted after the established date(s) may not be processed in time for the current semester.

    Unless prior billing arrangements are made, each registration form must include a check, money order, or charge card data for the exact amount of tuition.
