Learners Edge has formed a partnership with Brandman University to provide graduate-level professional development credits to students who complete coursework with Learners Edge. These credits are not part of a degree program but instead are primarily used for professional advancement such as salary increment steps and recertification. Students should seek approval of appropriate district or college officials before enrolling in these courses to satisfy any degree, state credential, or local school district requirements. Credit from Brandman University may be applied toward a degree program at the discretion of the accepting institution. Brandman University is a private, nonprofit institution accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) Senior College and University Commission.

Please Note: Brandman University will be closed for the Holiday Season on November 28th & 29th,
and from December 23rd, 2019 - January 2nd, 2020.
