If you plan to earn university credits for purposes of professional development, the only requirement is that the credits be earned through a regionally-accredited college or university. The Professional Educator Standards Board (PESB) does not maintain a list of regionally-accredited institutions, but the information can be readily obtained by checking the university’s website or consulting the website of the appropriate regional accrediting body.
If you intend to enroll in a university program that will lead to a Washington certificate or endorsement, the program must be regionally-accredited and must be state-approved.
