Many people have successfully used UC San Diego Extension academic credit to accomplish their personal and professional goals. Consider the following:
- Students may be able to transfer the units they earn to their high school, college or university.
- Students in UC San Diego Extension's Professional Certificate in Spanish Language can apply the academic credit toward the required elective units.
- If your employer rewards professional development credit, applying for UC San Diego Extension credit could be a way to increase your salary. It's worth checking with your employer. For example, California teachers have had great success applying the credits toward their 150 hours of professional growth.
- Registered nurses can earn 30 CEUs after completing the weeklong program in Ensenada for credit.
When participating in one of these study abroad programs, the relationship exists solely between the student and the foreign school. All questions about program requirements, travel abroad, application process, enrollment, housing, safety, etc. should be directed to the foreign school and not UC San Diego Extension. UC San Diego Extension has approved only the listed courses for academic credit and makes no representation about any other aspects of the foreign programs. Upon completion of the approved courses, students may apply for academic credit from UC San Diego Extension.
