Professional development courses are predominantly non-credit classes and are offered either solely by Extended Studies or jointly sponsored between Extended Studies and another department or college. If a professional development course is offered for academic credit, it is treated as an academic credit course. If the proposed instructor is a regular university faculty member, the relevant department or college must approve of the instructor's participation. Rates of compensation are a result of negotiation between Extended Studies, the sponsoring unit (if any), and the individual instructor.
Professional development non-credit courses are financially self-supporting. Co-sponsoring departments or colleges may share in the surplus revenues generated.
