All ASPDP courses can be used as P or A+ credits towards your NYC DOE salary differential (30+). These courses are far more affordable than comparable university courses that may be used towards the differential. ASPDP-approved courses are also approved for New York State CTLE Hours.

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.
