    Welcome to the Professional Development Credit Approval Application Form for the University of Mary!

    A state or federal agency, public entity (city, county, park or school district), business, nonprofit organization or individual may make application to the University of Mary for approval of a course, workshop, symposium, seminar, certificate offering, professional learning group (PLC's, book and topical study groups, collaborative teams) or a conference for credit. Application may be made for graduate or undergraduate credit or continuing education units (CEU's). A learning event may be delivered face-to-face, online, through a multiple event or series offering.

    Credit is offered for true educational experiences, not for participation in entertainment, meals, exhibits, social, or other non-instructional activity.

    To earn one undergraduate or graduate workshop credit, a minimum of 15 hours of direct  instructional time is required. A maximum of three hours may be earned through related delivered learning events such as workshops, seminars, conferences, online offerings, study groups, book studies or engaged time in application and reflection on application as identified in the work plan. Application may also be made to approve credit for combined or blended delivery through multiple events that accumulate or bank hours toward credit over a specified term.

    CEU's may be awarded in increments of 1/10th CEU for each hour of direct participation in an organized and approved noncredit continuing education activity offered and managed by a responsible and competent sponsor with academic direction and qualified instruction.

    Helpful Hints on Using the Application:
    • Please help us keep our data clean by using proper capitalization and spelling on your application: do not use all caps or all lowercase.
    • As you complete each page of the application, click "save" just in case you lose internet connection or your computer freezes.
    • You must complete all red fields or it will not allow you to submit your application.
    • If you click submit and it gives you an error message, you likely skipped a required field on a previous page. Go through the app again and check that you have an answer in each required question. Your application is not complete until you successfully submit it; simply saving the application will not submit it.
    • Best practice is to complete ALL fields, not just the red ones.

  • We require the submission of supporting documents in addition to completing the questions on this form. The required documents are as follows:

    2. If a letter grading scale is the proposed grading system, we require the grading rubric.
    3. Brochures or published schedule and documentation for any activity other than those described for validation of curriculum, attendance, and length of instruction time (i.e., conferences, conventions).

    You can upload the following documents in the below section. However, it only allows you to upload one file. The easiest way to get all of your individual files into one package is to convert it into a Zipped file. To do this, create a new folder on your desktop, make sure your organization's name is in the folder name, then gather all of the documents you want to upload to this form and place them into the folder. Once all the documents are in the folder, you can right-click on the folder, hover over the "send-to" menu option, then select "Compressed (zipped) folder." It will take a moment to create your file, but you can then upload the zipped file using the below "Attach file" button. Here is a link with more detailed instructions if you are uncertain of how to make a zipped file: http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Zip-File.
