Graduate Credit


For an additional fee, teachers who attend a 2-day workshop may earn three nationally accredited graduate-level credits from the Midwest Teachers Institute and their university partner, Colorado State University-Pueblo. These non-degree credits are designed for professional certification renewals and salary step increases. (Check with your district for approval prior to making a commitment.)

Midwest Teachers Institute (MTI) — 3 credits/$375

  • Attendance at both days of the Writing Remix, plus additional coursework related to the workshop, is required for credit.
  • MTI has an exclusive agreement with Colorado State University-Pueblo to provide teachers with an official transcript.
  • Colorado State University-Pueblo is nationally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. MTI courses through CSU-Pueblo are accepted in all 50 states.

Registration information will be shared during the 10 a.m. break of each workshop. After the workshop, attendees have 2 weeks to apply their training hours to the program. The cost of graduate credit is separate from the cost of attending a workshop.
