Graduate Credit Continuing Education

Students enrolled in degree-seeking programs at one of our partner schools may receive graduate credit for their successful completion of one or more of our First Amendment courses. Our partner schools may count these courses as an independent study, elective credits toward a graduate degree, or as degree-fulfilling courses. Students should consult with their school’s registrar for more details.

The cost for one 3-credit course is determined by our partner schools.

***** Noncredit seeking participants may enroll in the courses by registering for continuing education. Continuing education students will receive access to the same high-quality educational experiences as those enrolled in the for-credit program. All students are expected to rigorously engage in the course material and complete all assignments as outlined by the instructor(s). Academic credit will not be awarded for courses taken as continuing education. Students who enroll in non-credit courses are not eligible for admission into the accredited certificate program.

$350 per non-credit course


For continuing education registrants only: When submitting the payment, students may send checks to Religious Freedom Center of the Freedom Forum Institute, Attn: Erin Shellenberger, Center Manager, 555 Pennsylvania Ave., NW, Washington, D.C., 20001. Please make the check payable to the Newseum and write in the note of the check, Tuition Payment 31-32200-2030-3676.  Partner schools will be billed directly for their students’ cost of enrollment.
