Professional Development

State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECHs)

We assist teachers, administrators, school psychologists and school counselors in meeting their professional development needs.

The services we offer are:

  • sign in/out systems for participants
  • registration processes
  • provide official transcripts/certificates to participants upon completion
  • maintain course records for any Michigan Department of Education audit

The Michigan Department of Education has authorized an academic credit conversion. It states if a course is being offered for academic credit it can be converted to SCECHs using the following chart:

  • 1 academic credit = 30 SCECHs 
  • 2 academic credit = 60 SCECHs
  • 3 academic credit = 90 SCECHs

The GVSU/PDP processing fee is $25.00 for each student being awarded SCECHs.

For a current listing of courses offered for SCECHs click here and select Grand Valley State University as the sponsor.
