4. How many PDUs do I earn for a course taken for University Credit? For Non-Credit?

According to TSPC:

"If you are using college credits (earned as a student) as PDUs, you will need to submit an Official Transcript (unopened in the sealed envelope it was issued from) or eTranscript (emailed directly from the college/university) along with a Log of Professional Development Activities. Credit may be earned from a community college, college, or university so long as the course number is 100 or greater; in other words, either undergraduate or graduate level credit is acceptable. Coursework counts as follows:

One quarter of college credit = 20 PDUs (a 1 quarter class = 20 PDUs, a 2 quarter class = 40 PDUs, etc.)"

SPU Classes are 5000 level which indicates continuing education graduate level credits. So 1 qtr credit from SPU will = 20 PDUs etc.

When you take a course for graduate credit, the amount of PDUs that you earn is doubled. For example:

1 credit course non-credit (pay only the TINT Tuition Fee)= 10 PDUs.

1 credit course for credit (pay the TINT Tuition Fee and the University Credit fee)= 20 PDUs.

2 credit course non-credit (pay only the TINT Tuition Fee)= 20 PDUs.

2 credit course for credit (pay the TINT Tuition Fee and the University Credit fee)= 40 PDUs.

3 credit course non-credit (pay only the TINT Tuition Fee)= 30 PDUs.

3 credit course for credit (pay the TINT Tuition Fee and the University Credit fee)= 60 PDUs.

4 credit course non-credit (pay only the TINT Tuition Fee)= 40 PDUs.

4 credit course for credit (pay the TINT Tuition Fee and the University Credit fee)= 80 PDUs.

5 credit course non-credit (pay only the TINT Tuition Fee)= 50 PDUs.

5 credit course for credit (pay the TINT Tuition Fee and the University Credit fee)= 100 PDUs.

5. Can TINT Classes be used for Licensure purposes?

Yes, even though TSPC has tightened their criteria for the kinds of activities which qualify for PDUs for licensure purposes, we are happy to confirm that TINT's graduate classes continue to meet TSPC requirements. TSPC clarifies on their website, that college coursework remains completely acceptable and doubles the # of PDUs earned (see #4 above).
