If the event is on the event calendar, it counts for credit.
You may earn Pro Events credits in many different ways:
Starting fall 2022, only students registered for 100% online or branch-campus classes will have access to Pro Events recordings. The number of videos available will be pro-rated based on the number of such courses in which you are enrolled. Video events must be completed one week before the general Pro Events cut-offs. For fall 2022, the video deadlines are Oct. 21 for the first half-semester and Dec. 9 for the second half-semester.
Attendance Documentation is a form that a student needs to fill out and return to recognize a student attended an event. They must return it to receive Pro Events credit. You will find these forms attached on any event requiring the form on the Pro Events Calendar. You can also find Attendance Documentation forms on the Anderson Canvas page or go to the Pro Events Info page and look for Attendance Forms on the right-hand side.
Pro Credit is usually entered a week after the event. Please be patient, and if any issues occur please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Possibly! If you are attending a conference or lecture and you think it will have useful professional content, email us at email@example.com to ask about possible Events credit.
