Graduate Level College Extension Credits

Alternative TextParticipants in Slingerland classes, short classes, and workshops may receive graduate-level extension credits upon completion of the class or program. These credits are not part of a degree program, however, a participant may contact their university of choice for acceptance of a Slingerland course for credit. Colleges and universities offering these units/credits have included Alaska Pacific University, California State University, University of San Diego, Lewis and Clark College, Seattle Pacific University, Cumberland University, and Florida International University.

That these institutions provide graduate level extension credits for our classes is a strong testament to our competency and reliability and to the respect we have earned in the field of dyslexia education. If you are a teacher who is seeking professional advancement and to expand your “toolbox” of skills, you owe it to yourself to look into Slingerland training.

Enrollment for credit is at the option of the participant.

How to EnrollIf you would like to enroll for graduate level extension credits for Slingerland classes through University of San Diego, please follow this link to their site: USD Slingerland Classes. You must enroll for graduate level extension credits BEFORE the class begins. Enrolling through University of San Diego’s site does not automatically register you for a Slingerland class. You will still be required to register and pay for the Slingerland class through the online store or the links provided. For class locations visit the Upcoming Events window on the left.
