Professional Development Courses Sponsored by Outside Agencies

Next Steps

  • Outside agencies must complete a Course Request Form no less than 45 days prior to the start of class.
  • A course syllabus is required each time the course is taught and an instructor’s curriculum vitae must be provided, if not previously approved, with the Course Request Form.
  • Courses can be offered for 1-3 credit hours. Each credit hour represents 15 hours of seat-time.
  • Courses must be approved by the academic college and department prior to the class beginning, to assure that students will receive UW credit. No advertising of the availability of UW credit may occur until the outside agency has received from the Division of Distance Education, notice of approval by the appropriate University’s academic college and department.
  • Upon approval from the appropriate UW academic college and department, a packet will be sent to the contact person provided on the course request form that will include:
    1. Instructions for registration, and
    2. a sample sheet to help your students accurately fill out their forms.
  • Registration forms - Completed registration forms and payments must be sent to the Division of Distance Education immediately after the first class session. Envelopes are provided for the agency’s convenience.
  • Evaluation forms - Evaluations should be completed at the end of the course by students who are taking the class for UW credit. Envelopes are provided for the agency’s convenience.


A Grade roster will be sent to the instructor of the class after the registrations have been processed by the Division of Distance Education. These classes are S/U (satisfactory/unsatisfactory) grading only. Once all course work has been completed, the instructor needs to complete the grade sheet and return it in the envelope provided as soon as possible.
