Graduate credit from CSU is available (at additional cost) through the CCCS Professional Development CTE Common Checklist.  You can do the 2017-18 checklist if you need credit by summer’s end.  If you can wait for credit, you can use the 2018-19 checklist when it becomes available.  Please go to http://coloradostateplan.com/educator/cte-professional-development-credit/ for more information.  Different this year – there will NOT be "stand alone" CSU credit for the CACTE Summit.
