Coursework used to satisfy the college coursework path must be taken from a regionally accredited college or university and meet at least one of the following conditions:
- Units must count toward a college degree or the obtainment/upgrade of a California Child Development Permit or California Teaching Credential.
- General Education and ESL/Basic Skills courses
If the coursework does not meet any of these conditions, the coursework can be used to satisfy the Stipend Program’s 21-hour professional development requirement. Hours are calculated using the following conversion: 1 semester unit = 15 hours; 1 quarter unit = 10 hours.
