NOTE: You must submit your coursework to BloomBoard before registering for graduate level credit through Univeristy of the Pacific.

Step 4: Apply for Graduate-level Credit: BloomBoard has partnered with University of the Pacific to offer educators the opportunity to earn Professional development units. These units are post-baccalaureate professional development coursework designed specifically for graduate-level educators and administrators. Semester units (hours) of non-degree graduate-level credit are awarded for successful completion of coursework. This enables educators to work toward salary advancement and/or recertification while improving their practice through competency-based micro-credentials. Each of the courses are offered for 1 professional development unit. In addition, these courses will be listed on a University transcript but do not apply to any particular graduate degree at this institution.

  • We recommend students confirm with their district that this coursework will be applicable for their needs.
