Permission to Take Classes

Permission to take any NAD Teacher certification course from SAU is by approval of the Southern Online Campus Office. Students are granted access to classes on a non-degree basis. If you are interested in obtaining a graduate degree through Southern, you must apply to SAU and obtain either regular or provisional acceptance into one of the degree programs.


Please Note: 


  1. Students will need to know what courses are required by their institutions to maintain their certification before signing up for courses. If there are quesitons regarding certification, teachers should review the North American Division Certification Manual and contact their union registrar for confirmation.
  2. Students may take no more than 12 hours of coursework (four classes) toward a particular graduate degree before completing all pre-requisites for admission and being formally accepted into the degree program. Further requirements are listed on the degree program pages for each school.  For more information on available graduate degrees visit Graduate Studies.
