Course Approval Requirements and Process

PD credit requirements include a minimum of fifteen (15) hours of formal instruction per PD credit, led by a qualified Master’s level content instructor.

Potential instructors must submit a completed Instructor Information Form for review and approval. Instructor of Record status is granted according to NNU accreditation and customer service policies. Status may be revoked at the discretion of the University.

Documents received by the CPD will be reviewed for approval by the appropriate university faculties. The PD Coordinator will contact the instructor to facilitate optimal course design and to notify of course approval.

Requests for credit approval must be submitted prior to the start date of the course, preferably 2-4 weeks ahead of time.

Whether you're already running PD in your district and are looking for credit or have an idea for a new course, feel free to contact the PD Coordinator with any questions: or 208-467-8374.
