CTA/NEA Micro-certification Program

California Teachers Association Logo       NEA LOGO  

Select and complete a micro-certification and submit to receive credit from Chico State.

  • The qualifying micro-certifications are listed in the CTA Stack Library.
  • Each micro-certification is at least 15 hours and 15 hours = 1 university credit through Chico State. The cost is $75 per unit of university credit.
  • Submit the online enrollment request form once you’ve completed  1+ micro-certifications. There is no need to submit certificates or other documents. CTA can verify your completed micro-certifications.
  • Once verified, you’ll be enrolled for the appropriate number of units and Professional & Continuing Education will send you an email with a link to pay the $75/per unit fees, as well as a payment deadline. 
  • At the end of the term, Dr. Susan Green will review the work submitted by the participants and grade accordingly.
  • You can spread the units you earn across the fall, winter, and spring terms, or earn them all in one term. It’s up to you!

Official Transcripts

You can request an official, mailed transcript online. For questions regarding other services offered by Student Records and Registration please visit www.csuchico.edu/sro. Teachers requesting transcripts for salary increments should note the Special Instructions and review the processing outline to ensure timely receipt of transcripts. Your transcript shows work for courses numbered 001-899. Courses numbered 800-899 do not apply towards a degree unless approved by the appropriate department. Successful completion of an 800 level course will appear on the transcript with a CR or Letter grade and a value in the attempted field that may not be reflected in the earned field or the summary totals. Credit/No Credit Grading: If you plan to transfer to graduate or professional schools, be aware that some schools in evaluating transfer credit may regard Credit (CR) grades as C's and No Credit (NC) grades as F's.


Refunds are only granted if your request to Professional & Continuing Education is prior to the day of the conference. No refund is granted after the conference has begun.


* These courses are designed to meet objectives not served by established graduate and undergraduate courses. However, in exceptional cases and with the approval of the appropriate department chair and the dean of your school, they may be applied toward degree and credential programs for which such courses are deemed acceptable. Determination of the acceptability of these courses for degree and credential credit will depend primarily upon course content and approach. If you are considering using these courses for credential or degree purposes, consult with the appropriate department before registering.
