Accreditations and Quick LInks


Learners Edge has formed a partnership with University of Massachusetts Global 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 UMass Global may be applied toward a degree program at the discretion of the accepting institution.  UMass Global is a nonprofit affiliate of University of Massachusetts, accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) Senior College and University Commission.
