Credit Validation



What is Credit Validation?

University of San Diego’s Professional and Continuing Education offers graduate level extension credit for work completed in trainings, workshops, conferences, induction, credentials, and other professional development programs. Graduate level extension credits are not part of a degree program but instead are primarily used for professional development, and may be used toward salary advancement and recertification.*
