Read a book, earn graduate credit


Sounds too good to be true? It’s not. We’ve partnered with California Lutheran University so you can earn graduate credit by reading Corwin books. California Lutheran University is regionally accredited by The Western Association of Schools and Colleges Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), one of six regional accrediting agencies in the United States that accredit public and private higher education institutions.

It’s the most convenient way yet to individually earn graduate credit – as well as a perfect enhancement to district professional learning communities and book clubs!  

How it works: 

  1. Read any Corwin book or eBook of your choice  
  2. Submit a final written assignment within three months 
  3. Earn one semester unit of graduate credit that can be used towards continuing education requirements or help you advance on the pay scale
