Registration Information

Registration Information

Registration procedures vary for continuing education courses offered through SPU's Center for Professional Education, depending on the course you select.

When you locate a course of interest in the Course Finder, you will find information there about how to register for that course.

Registering for Distance Learning Courses

Distance learning courses are offered on a year-long term, September 1–August 31, and you may register for them at any time. Refer to the specific course description in the Course Finder for completion time and due dates.

You may register online, by phone, by fax, or by mail for distance learning classes. Payment in full is required at the time of registration, and you will want to register early to obtain materials in a timely manner.

Online Registration

The online catalog includes many distance learning courses. Some courses are not eligible for online registration.

Instructions

Before you begin: Visit spu.edu/findmyid/ to see if you are already in the University's system. If you are, verify your contact information and save your username and password for future use.

With your username and password, proceed to Online Registration. (If you can't find your course, visit Course Finder and follow registration instructions there.)

Not in the SPU system?

If you are a new student, you will be directed to set up your student account at the end of the registration process. Proceed to Online Registration. (If you can't find your course, visit Course Finder and follow registration instructions there.)

Important Information for Distance Learning Students

Distance learning courses appear on your transcript with the date the grade is posted.

Please allow six weeks after you have submitted your finished course for the course to be graded and posted. Please keep this grading-time allowance in mind if you need transcripts for salary increases or certification renewals.

Evaluation Forms

After your course has concluded, you will receive an Evaluation Form by email within 30 days of grade posting. Please take the time to complete the online survey for each course you take. Your feedback is both valuable and appreciated.

Transcripts

To request an official SPU transcript, visit Ordering Transcripts. Seattle Pacific University reserves the right to deny official transcript services due to indebtedness to the institution. If a student has an account, official transcripts ($5 each) are released only if his or her account is paid in full.
