  1. Hello,

    My name is Brenda and I teach Spanish, middle school level. I would like to register for the online course and also need to get the credits. However, in my district any units taken
    for the purpose of salary advancement need to be pre-approved. Would it be possible for me to get a copy of the course syllabus prior to registering? I need to attach it to my application in order to get the approval for the units.

    Thank you,
    Brenda Zavala

  2. Are these credits transferrable to any University or only if you are a University of Portland student? Thank you!

    1. Technically any university, but you need to check to make sure they are applicable to the program/purpose you need them for.

  3. Hi, I am interested in attending your workshop in the Whittier area, but it’s too late to get it board approved for the August date. The email I received mentioned a possible alternative date in November. I just want to let you know I would be interested in the November dates. Thanks.
