Meeting Virginia State Requirements

What’s Your Goal?

Renew My Virginia License

We have helped thousands of teachers, many from Virginia, renew their licenses, increase their salaries and advance their careers.

Renew Your License

Individuals who hold a five-year renewable license must complete 180 points for renewal, as well as the statutory requirements for renewal.

Credit Conversion

1  Teaching Channel with Learners Edge graduate level, continuing education credit = 1 semester credit hour = 30 professional development points 

Each Teaching Channel with Learners Edge 3-credit course requires approximately 45 hours for course completion.

Individuals renewing ten-year licenses will be required to complete 270 professional development points for renewal.  All statutory renewal requirements also are required.   

Credit from a regionally accredited university is one way to complete your renewal requirements. Each semester credit hour is worth 30 professional development points and must be recorded on an official college or university transcript.  

Meet your renewal requirements AND work toward salary advancement by registering for two 3-credit courses at Teaching Channel with Learners Edge. See examples below.

Select 1, 2, or 3-credit courses for your renewal AND salary advancement needs.

Choose Flex Credit or professional development courses to meet renewal requirements only.

Why You Should Enroll in Courses as a Long-Term Investment

In many districts, teachers gain a salary increase when they accrue graduate-level credits. But have you considered the money you leave on the table when you delay accruing those credits?

Teachers who gain an extra $8K in salary 20 years before retirement bring home an extra $160K in earnings. And those teachers may also receive a higher pension by finishing their careers at an advance salary level. Compare that to the educator who achieves that goal 10 years later: $80K less income. See what credit accrual could mean for you by using our salary calculator. Be sure to check our course bundles that let you accrue credits at less cost and on a pay-as-you-learn plan.
