Friends University offers graduate level workshops across a number of content areas and grade levels, supporting the needs of educators seeking re-licensure opportunities, salary advancement and professional development. Workshops also provide elective options for students enrolled in the Master of Education in Teaching and Learning, AND the NEW Special Education High Incidence (P-12).
Online or Paper Application Process – Your Choice
Prior to enrollment, please complete a brief Application for Graduate Workshop Attendance.
You may choose either an Online Application for Graduate Workshop Attendance or the Paper Application for Graduate Workshop Attendance.
Paper Application for Graduate Workshop Attendance is an electronic process for those who may not have immediate access to email or are somewhat limited with technology skills. Click on “paper application,” enter the required information and then press “submit.” Your application will reach us immediately, allowing us to process the information the same as an online application. It’s that easy!
The Online Application for Graduate Workshop Attendance is preferred, as it “populates” previously entered information following initial set-up as a new applicant. For first time online users, select “new applicant” and complete the steps. Following this, you only need to sign in for future terms, as previously entered information will automatically appear. For a visual guide with screenshots, view a PDF guide. This process requires access to your email for password information during the initial set-up.
Friends University has been the “gift that keeps on giving.” I continue to be impressed by the variety shown in the teacher workshop offerings. They are timely and critical to strengthening the level of expertise in my teaching craft. Based on these workshops and the summer graduate class offerings, I am able to return to my school in the fall with impactful lessons, technology strategies to enhance my instruction and leadership ideas for my team.Ramona Kee-Adams, Master of Education in Teaching & Learning Graduate
