The University of the Pacific is a nationally recognized university with three campuses in Northern California. The University College (UC), formerly known as The Center for Professional and Continuing Education (CPCE), at the University of the Pacific is committed to extending learning opportunities by delivering high-quality professional development courses for K-12 educators to help achieve professional advancement and improve the educational experience for communities throughout the country. 

Learners Edge partners with the University College to offer professional development programming where students can earn graduate-level professional development units (PDUs) for successful completion of applicable coursework. PDUs 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. In additional these courses will be listed on a University transcript but are not applicable to any graduate degree at the University of the Pacific.


Regional Accreditation: WSCUC (formerly WASC)

National Teacher Accreditation: NCATE/CAEP

Continuing education graduate credit is intended to fulfill requirements for
license renewal/lane change when the student has obtained proper prior approval.
