Graduate Professional Growth

ACIS is proud to have partnered with the University of the Pacific, one of the oldest institutions of higher learning in the state of California, to offer you this benefit. The Center for Professional and Continuing Education offers teachers the opportunity to earn Graduate-Level Professional Development. These semester units (credits) are intended for professional growth, not for pursuing an advanced degree. They are designed for salary advancement and have been accepted in school districts across the US.

All courses are in accordance with guidelines set forth by California WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges). Participants are advised to verify acceptance of such credit with their school district or state licensing bureau prior to registration for unit credit.

Three Simple Steps to Earning Three Semester Units for Your ACIS Tour

Step 1

Obtain prior approval from your school district regarding graduate level university credit for leading an ACIS educational tour or participating in a Global Conference.

Step 2

After your tour, submit a registration form (PDF) along with payment of $279 to:

Courses 4 Teachers/University of the Pacific
Attn: Karin Alexander, Executive Director
696 San Ramon Valley Blvd #518
Danville, CA 94526

Payment can be in the form or MasterCard, Visa or a personal check made payable to the “University of the Pacific.”

Step 3

Once the University receives your registration form and payment, they will contact ACIS to verify your participation on an ACIS tour. When this verification is complete, a grade letter will be mailed to you on University letterhead.
