AS A POST BACCALAUREATE, DO I NEED TO TAKE THE COURSES FOR GRADUATE CREDIT FOR TEACHER CERTIFICATION? Unless you are working on a master's degree or graduate program for which post bacc credits are approved for graduate credit, or if your school district requires you to earn graduate credit for the increased pay scale, you do not need to take university credit classes for graduate credit. Undergraduate credit is sufficient for teacher certification, according to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.

CONTINUING EDUCATION UNITSEvery 5 years, a Wisconsin certified educator needs to earn either 6 university credits or 180 hours of instruction as Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Some general non-credit programs conducted through the university offer Continuing Education Units (CEUs) as a means of keeping record of formalized instruction.
