Partners in Success

Class participants who elect to take AOE courses for “Graduate Credit” may request an official transcript from our educational partner, Morningside College in Sioux City, IA.

Morningside is a fully accredited and nationally recognized institution for higher education and maintains a 500-level degree accreditation through the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), a highly trusted independent organization that accredits degree-granting post-secondary educational institutions.


Accepted Advancement

Thanks to our educational partnership with Morningside College, students can elect to take AOE Courses for “Graduate Credit.” Courses may be used for license renewal, salary advancement or may be transferred into another accredited graduate degree program as semester hour credit. Check with your program/district to ensure transferability, AOE cannot guarantee credits will be accepted as transfer credit at another institution.

You do not need to be a Morningside student to take AOE partner classes. If you are seeking a degree, you can use AOE partner classes as electives (limit 8 credit hours) in Morningside’s Master of Arts in Teaching online degree.

Visit Morningside’s partner page for more information on our educational partnership. Participants who take AOE courses for “Non-Graduate Credit” are not eligible to receive official transcripts through Morningside.
