CPDU vs Graduate Credit:  All classes will have the same format for graduate credit or CPDU's. We view the graduate credit option as a benefit for the participant. Classes are designed around best practice models of professional development which include reflective, practical application. Please remember 1 CPDU is issued for each hour of class attended.

Contact Lindenwood University for transcripts.
