If you have any questions any of these instructions please contact K12 inservice at (435) 865-8085 or k12inservice@suu.edu. Emails will be the most efficient method of communication. If you call with an error we may end up sending you information or needing information through an email.

  • Participants must get admitted AND registered before the first day of class (participants should allow at least one full week - 7 days - to go through both of the processes).
  • If participants get an error message they must contact our office (at k12inservice@suu.edu) immediately with the following information:
    • Full Name
    • T-Number
    • Birthdate
    • Course Number (CRN)
    • Course Name
    • Which step they are in inside the instructions
    • Screenshot of the error message
  • Before ordering a transcript, it is the responsibility of the participant to make sure the course and the grade are on the transcript - AND that the grade has been calculated in the GPA - this is done by previewing the unofficial transcript that can be accessed through the SUU portal.
  • The course grade will not appear until the instructor has entered grades for all students, and the grades have been rolled onto the transcript.

Drop Policy

We would like to highly encourage participants to seriously consider the following information before enrolling in one of district/educational partner courses in which SUU credit is sought. Just as with regular university courses, there are times you can drop without consequence, so it is the same with our continuing education courses. Past a certain date there are implications for you to consider. Please use the information below to weigh your options, before you consider seeking credit (register) for one of SUUs continuing education courses.

Policy on drops:

  • Prior to the first day of class:
    • Partner/participant jointly request to be drop deleted – this does not require any approval outside of our office, this would leave no record of having taken the course and there would not be a charge.
  • Within the first week of class (Day 1 to Day 7 of course):
    • Partner/participant jointly request to be drop deleted – this requires approval outside of our office; and if approved, this would leave no record of having taken the course and there would not be a charge – if not approved a “W” will be placed on the record if drop is still pursued (see blurb below).
  • After the first week of class (Day 8 to end of course):
    • Circumstances beyond the participant’s control (death, hospitalization, severe illness etc.) - we can request a drop delete - if approved, this would leave no record of having taken the course and there would not be a charge – we request that our partner vet the circumstance and write an email of support to us requesting the drop delete.
    • Circumstances within the participant’s control (working two jobs, didn’t realize how much work was involved, and etc.) - we can do a withdrawal "W" per the request of the participant/partner - this leaves a record - the charge remains - the "W" can have implications if participant becomes a degree seeking student and seeks financial aid (see blurb below).
    • The participant discontinues participating in the course - we can either have the instructor report the grade earned, or report a "UW" - a "UW" is equal to an "F" in the GPA - the "UW" can have implications if participant becomes a degree seeking student and seeks financial aid.

Please read very carefully:

Withdrawing with a “W” can have implications on your financial aid. The criteria for receiving financial aid (which includes scholarships, loans, and grants) are that you have a good GPA. (2.0 or higher), and that you have a good completion rate (70%). Completion rate refers to the ratio between how many courses you attempt and how many you complete. For example, if you enroll in 6 credits and you withdraw with a “W” from 3 credits, your completion rate is 3/6 credits or 50%. When your completion rate drops below 70% overall, the financial aid office will contact you about the possibility of not being eligible for financial aid. It is very important that you get more advice from the financial aid office before you withdraw with a “W” from any of your courses. When you stop participating in a course, your instructor only has two options – a) give you the grade you earned, or b) give you a “UW”. A “UW” counts as an “F” (0.00) in your GPA. This can bring down your overall GPA on your transcript.

How will the course be graded?

For both 6-credit classes, you will receive a letter grade. In order to receive your letter grade, you will need to submit the following artifact in your Canvas shell:

Certificate of Completion which will be given to you at the end of the training
A letter from instructor indicating completion of training

Once at least one of the above artifacts are submitted, and payment has been received, your grade will be issued and rolled onto a transcript within two weeks of the artifact submission date.

The Canvas course can be accessed through logging into your SUU portal, looking on the right hand side, and clicking on the “Canvas” button. The course will then be listed under the title of “The Science of Reading”. Once you click on the course you will be able to submit your two artifacts for grading there.

*Please note, the course will show up on your SUU transcript under the title of “The Science of Reading”
