Professional Development Institute online courses are worth 3 ⅓ semester units (5 quarter units) of post-baccalaureate (graduate) credit from the University of California San Diego (UCSD) Extension. UC San Diego is part of the University of California system and accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). If you register for a PDI online course with university credit, upon successful completion of all course requirements and timelines, you will receive an official university transcript with a letter grade for the course.

Register for a PDI flex course for only $120 with the discount (regularly $149) or register for a flex course including credit from UCSD for only $304 with the discount (regularly $379).

Register for a semester course for only $160 with the discount (regularly $199) or register for a semester course including credit from UCSD for only $344 with the discount (regularly $429).

Note that you should be sure to check with your district or state as to whether or not you are required to provide an official university transcript in order to receive proper credit for your course.

Course content is identical between flex courses and semester courses. The difference between the two options is that you can take up to one year to complete a flex course, whereas you must be finished by the end of the semester for a semester course. Additionally, a flex course has five online tests and five written assignments. A semester course has seven written assignments. Both course options are approved for post-baccalaureate (graduate) credit from UC San Diego Extension.
