Earning Workshop Credit

There are several convenient ways to earn workshop credit:

  • Create a workshop (pdf) within your school or organization.
  • Attend an upcoming workshop (on campus or off campus).
  • Register for an online video workshop through Educational Impact Academy.
  • Contact other approved workshop providers who offer University of Dayton workshop credit.

Record of Workshop Credit

All completed graduate workshops through the University of Dayton School of Education & Health Sciences are awarded non-graded workshop credit or “CR” on official transcripts. The credit, or “CR,” is equal to or better than the letter grade of a “B.”

An automatic grade report will be mailed to you approximately one week after the grading period. This report will reflect the credit on your University of Dayton student record. An automatic grade report is not an official transcript.
