The Department of Special Education offers summer coursework to educators enrolled in the Alternative Pathway to Professional Educator License (APPEL) program. Participants do not need to be a current University of Utah student to enroll.

To register, please click on the course that you want to enroll in below. Students will receive an email confirming registration once the process is completed. The APPEL classes are three-credit hour courses. Participants who are pursuing a Master's degree will need to contact their University program for confirmation on course acceptance to meet their program requirements. Participants can request a transcript once courses are complete and grades have been posted for any USBE licensure requirements.

Courses are available to individuals participating in a local APPEL program. APPEL programs are administered through local education agencies (e.g., schools/districts) where educators are encouraged to work with their APPEL program advisors regarding licensing requirements.

Registration will be available on March 21, 2022. Please note that registration is not through the general University of Utah course registration. Registration will only be available through this website. All APPEL classes will be online only. Courses do not have a specific meeting time. Classes will be available through Canvas via the University Campus Information System (CIS) and assignments submitted through Canvas. Assignments are due weekly. SPED APPEL online courses will run June 5 - July 15, 2022. Students may enroll in multiple classes at once.
