Verification Documents for Your District or State
Although these courses are taken by teachers across the country to advance their salary or complete re-licensure, each state and district have their own guidelines and rules. Always make sure to check with your school district and/or state licensing agency to verify that these course offerings will fulfill your district and/or state requirements.

See the Brandman course list below for total course pricing. Registration is broken up into two parts: your initial Model Teaching registration fee (varies depending on your course & provides you one full year of access to the course and scoring by your instructor) and $70 per credit set by the University to post your grade and process your credits. Once you register and pay the Model Teaching fee, you will have access to your course(s), complete them at your own pace, and then once complete, pay your credit fee of $70/credit to process your credits and request your transcript.
You may complete up to 15 credits per semester, per university. If you need more than 15 credits in a semester, please select multiple university partnered courses when ordering or when building a custom bundle package.
If You Require More Than 15 Credits/Semester, We Recommend You:
A. Spread out your required number of credits over more than 1 academic semester (Spring, Fall, or Summer)
B. Choose multiple university partners (up to 15 credits per university) when ordering or building a custom bundle package.
Please always check with your district to confirm how many total credits they will accept in a given semester.
