Graduate Credit

NSTA Conference Transcripts

NSTA offers professional development certification (based on clock hours) for its conferences. The transcript, which lists the sessions attended, also serves as proof of attendance at the conference.

NSTA acknowledges up to 5 clock hours per day and up to 25 clock hours per week for NSTA STEM21. Please note that these hours are not graduate/ continuing education units. It is attendees’ responsibility to forward their transcript to the school administration in accordance to their state’s qualifications. NSTA does not send this information to the school administration. Most administrations recognize NSTA conference attendance as professional development credits toward enhancing teachers’ skills and education.
