Frequently Asked Questions

Academic Programs

What is the difference between courses for academic credit and credit for professional development?

Academic semester credit courses may be used to satisfy requirements in undergraduate, graduate level degree, credential, or certificate programs. Most Professional Development Units (PDU) are calculated at 15 contact hours per one PDU. Courses that award PDUs may be useful to move up salary scales, maintain certifications or licensures. Unless specifically articulated to an academic credit bearing course or program, these courses may not be used to satisfy coursework in any degree program.

What is a LiveText membership and how is it used?

LiveText membership refers to the one-time student paid fee that provides access to a platform for posting signature assignments and portfolio work.  The university uses data generated by LiveText student interactions to support accreditation and track course data.  Additional information regarding LiveText is available here.

Each class runs independently and on different schedules, so you can only attend the class you registered for.

My employer offers tuition assistance. Does Brandman University accept this?

Yes, we assist many students in utilizing their tuition assistance program through their employer. Please contact corporatetraining@brandman.edu for assistance with your specific program.

Will my financial aid apply for these courses?
