graduate-level college credit
Graduates of Leadership Springfield’s Signature Class will now be able to claim graduate-level college credit for their experiences in the intensive nine-month program – at no additional cost.
Drury University is offering Signature Class graduates up to six hours of academic credit toward the Master of Nonprofit and Civic Leadership degree, which is a 30 credit-hour program. This offer is retroactive to Class 29, which graduated in 2014. Three of the credits will count toward the MNCL 701 Social Impact and Assessment course. Three additional credit hours may be earned by submitting a written request along with documentation of professional accomplishments and academic credentials.
The courses will appear on a participant’s transcript after all degree requirements have been met. There is no tuition cost and Drury will waive the $25 application fee for all Leadership Springfield applicants.
