Coursework for the new Credential program is scheduled to begin August 31, 2009. Hope also will be releasing a Master of Arts in Educational Administration degree to accompany the Credential. Approval from the Western Association of Schools & Colleges (WASC), a regional accrediting body, is anticipated for June, 2009.
