Professional Development Courses

Professional Development Courses Sponsored by Outside Agencies

The University of Wyoming’s Outreach School, in partnership with the academic colleges and departments, is pleased to offer Professional Development credit for outside agencies (school districts, foundations and other non-governmental agencies) who wish to provide training for their employees.  These courses can be taken for undergraduate and/or graduate UW credits that are not transferable into a UW degree program.  These courses are numbered “4740”, “4074” or “5959”. The “5959” courses are graduate credits and are used primarily by practicing teachers who already have a bachelor’s degree.  Courses numbered “4740” and “4074” are undergraduate credits and are often used by paraprofessionals and other individuals who do not have a bachelor’s degree.

Courses are offered and approved by the appropriate academic department.  Outside agencies are responsible for all instructional costs.  The University will charge students a registration fee of $50 per credit hour.

The Outreach School must follow a rigorous course approval process that assures that academic authorities are consulted in these collaborations with outside agencies.  Requests must be submitted 45 days prior to the start of class.
