Clock Hours & Academic Credit

North Cascades Institute is approved by the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction to grant teachers clock hour certification. The fee is $3.50/clock hour. The number of clock hours available appears above the tuition of each seminar.

Many programs are offered for optional academic credit (400 level) through Western Washington University. The number of credits available is listed below the title of each course. A written project is required; grading is on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory basis. We will send your registration to the university, which will bill you $50/credit. All credits are pending approval by WWU.
