Longwood University

  • Greetings:

    The College of Graduate and Professional Studies at Longwood University announces its Summer 2017 Online Professional Development Courses for educators. These courses are designed for non-degree seeking students who would like to earn graduate credit over the summer, with options ranging from 3 credit hour graduate classes or 1 credit opportunities.

    With all of our classes being offered fully online, you can have the flexibility of enjoying your summer schedule while continuing to work on earning credits toward teacher licensure or recertification at our affordable rate of $275/credit (in-state).

    Do you know someone with provisional status interested in moving into full teacher licensure? If so, we offer four of the classes required by the VDOE to achieve this.  They are marked with * below. 

    Here are our Summer Session I and II courses:
