Graduate Education Courses

 

Please register as early as possible. New students should create an account at least one week in advance of the course start date to allow ample time to receive credentials and register for the course. Interested in applying to one of our programs? Please see additional program information below and visit our Graduate Admissions page.


All Graduate Education classes will meet in-person unless otherwise noted. Please see the Graduate Education (GED) schedule below. Click here to see the TESOL (GSL) schedule. The Spring 2023 schedule will be posted in mid-October.

Spring 2023 registration for matriculated students will open on November 7 and for non-matriculated students (students not currently enrolled in a GED program) on November 28. Please be sure to register early to ensure a spot in the course(s) you plan to take. Matriculated students, new students who have paid their enrollment deposit, and non-matriculated students who have taken a graduate course at SMC in the past year may register through KnightVision Self Service. Students not enrolled in a program who have not taken a graduate course at SMC before and those who have not taken a course in the past year must submit the Non-Matriculated Student Application form to be approved for access to KnightVision Self Service through which they will then register. It can take up to a week after the Non-Matriculated Student Application form is completed to complete the application process and have access to the online learning management system (Canvas), so please register early! Course confirmations come from the Registrar’s Office.
