Earn Graduate Credits toward your Kentucky License Renewal with our professional development courses.


Teach & Kids Learn (TKL) provides accredited university graduate credits courses. We provide official transcripts. and letter grades upon the successful completion of your selected course. When selecting your course, choose any of our Graduate Credit level courses from our registration page.

We always recommend that you follow any pre-approval requirements in your district before you register for courses. However, many teachers have been successful using our courses to advance on their district’s salary scale—and have typically been able to use our university/college-level course offerings.

Please contact us if you need assistance with the submission of your district approval forms, course syllabus, etc.

If your Statement of Eligibility has expired and you have not completed one year of teaching, one option you have for renewal is to take six semester graduate hours. This option is only available to you ONCE for renewal of the statement.

If you want to renew a certificate but are not currently teaching, you may take six semester hours of graduate credit and provide the state with an official transcript.

1 Graduate Credit = 1 Semester Hour
