Teacher Education Institute & Graduate Workshop

Colorado State University-Pueblo's Teacher Education Institute provides a broad array of post-baccalaureate education programs with a strong professional focus and firm grounding in the liberal arts and sciences. We deliver high quality graduate credit activity-oriented professional development experiences for post-baccalaureate students engaged with the primary and secondary education industry.

Graduate Workshop formats vary from traditional to correspondence and online courses delivered nation-wide through a series of academic partnerships between the University, its divisions and departments and incorporated third-party providers.


    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 licenses teachers, principals or other school administrators.

    Because of the large variety of in-service training programs provided by the 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. Courses previously offered may be offered again without additional review unless substantial changes have been made to the course content. The following will apply:

    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. Course description
    4. Schedule of meeting days/time
    5. Course start date/end date
    6. Learning outcomes
    7. Assessment methods
    8. Grading scale
    9. ADA statement

    CSU-Pueblo staff can provide sample course syllabi upon request.

    There must be at least 15 contact hours for each credit requested (1 credit = 15 hours; 2 credits = 30 hours; 3 credits = 45 contact hours).

    A qualified instructor from the school/district must be involved in the teaching of the course content and grading of student work. See the section below on "Instructor Approval Process." The "instructor of record" will assign the grades on the Colorado State University-Pueblo class grade sheet. A regular grade is assigned, and will appear as "Degree-Plus" on a Colorado State University-Pueblo transcript.

    After all requested materials are received, they are forwarded to the Teacher Education Program, Associate Dean, or other appropriate department head/Dean (ART, MUSIC, etc.) for approval. Once approved, the school or district representative is informed.

    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 either on a volunteer basis or the instructor is paid through another source.
    Through this CSU-Pueblo model, tuition is $52.00 per credit hour (subject to change), payable to "CSU-Pueblo". Tuition is due at the time of registration.

    Upon course and instructor approval, each school/district course coordination will be provided with course registration forms and a sample completed form. The forms may be duplicated locally if necessary to register students.

    The registration forms must be completed as indicated and returned to one of the CSU-Pueblo Extended Studies offices by the established date(s). Forms turned in 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.

    Persons interested in teaching courses for teacher re-certification credit and/or course approval must submit the following items to the CSU-Pueblo Division of Extended Studies:
