  1. What is the cost per credit for renewal of my teaching license ?

  2. The cost depends on how you register. The least-expensive option is usually to register as an undergraduate and take only workshop courses (course number will be followed by something like :0WKA or :0WKB). Scholarships may also be available for some workshops.

    If you do not yet have a Master’s degree plus 30 hours, it may be worth it to register as a graduate student. It’s more expensive, but it may help you “move up” your salary schedule. Scholarships for graduate students are more substantial to help defer the additional cost.

    You can calculate your projected tuition here: https://www.maui.uiowa.edu/maui/pub/tuition/projection.page
    For College, select Division of Continuing Education; Tuition Group should be either 13005 Continuing Education Distance Undergraduate or 13007 Continuing Education Distance Graduate (depending on your choice). You’ll notice that the projection website above adds a technology fee, but this fee *doesn’t* apply for workshops.

    You can also contact Laurie Croft (laurie-croft@uiowa.edu) if cost is a barrier for you.
