Online Graduate Credit Courses
Online Courses are now available!
Molloy College, Education Division offers fully online graduate education courses throughout the year. (If you are seeking coursework offered online that is offered for in-service credit and also qualifies for CTLE credit, please click here).
Our instructor-facilitated, fully online, Teacher Professional Development courses are informative, convenient, and highly interactive. Our instructors are famous for their ability to create warm and supportive communities of learners. All courses run for two weeks. These graduate courses are part of our graduate education master's degree program at Molloy. The online schedule is just a more intensive schedule than our fall or spring semester schedule of classes. The online courses are all part of our graduate course offerings in the Division of Education and can be used as an elective towards our Master of Science degree in Education. The online courses are all listed with the course code, EDU 5900. Each course is a 3-credit graduate course and is approved as such by the New York State Department of Education.
The general course description can be found on our website at: https://www.molloy.edu/academics/graduate-programs/graduate-education/graduate-level-courses. Since this is a special topics course, the specific course descriptions differ depending upon the topic. The description of the EDU 5900 courses offered can be found below by clicking the course titles.
Courses are project-oriented and include lessons, hands-on assignments, discussion areas, supplementary links, and more. You can complete any course entirely from your home or office, any time of the day or night. You'll be given assignments to do each day completing engaging lessons in an enjoyable, interactive learning environment. Expert instructors develop and lead every course, and you'll be able to interact with them and with fellow students in lively online discussion areas. Courses are offered throughout the year, so you can sign up anytime. Upon completing a course with a passing grade, you'll get a CTLE certificate of completion from Molloy College. Your official transcript can be requested by clicking here.
Each online course is approved for 45 hours of Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE). Click here for further information on the new CTLE requirements. Upon completion of the course just either call or email Danielle Albanese, our Records Coordinator, at 516-323-3551 email: email@example.com and she will mail you out your CTLE certificate.
All courses require Internet access, e-mail, and the Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox Web browser.
Courses are offered throughout the year.
Online Format and Canvas
Molloy College uses a Learning Management System or online platform called Canvas. Any fully online course that you take at Molloy will be taught using Canvas. This online course is not taught in "real time", meaning students do not have to log in at a specific time. Therefore, you do not have to attend at a given time. You can log on at any time to take the course. However, there will be assignments that will be due at specific times.
Once you have registered for your first course, you will be emailed a Molloy email account. Once you receive your Molloy email account, please follow the instructions in the email to set-up your permanent account. (If you do not receive the email within 3 business days of registering for your first course please check your spam folder or contact Alina R. Haitz at: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can log in at: www.molloy.edu/canvas using your permanent Username and Password. Once you log in to your Canvas account you can look up the required text(s) for the course, as well as any assignments that the instructor may have posted.
It is also strongly suggested that you click on the following YouTube video: How To Access Canvas and take the Canvas Student Tour to become more familiar with using Canvas. There is also a Canvas quickstart page at: https://resources.instructure.com/courses/32/pages/canvas-student-quickstart.
The tuition is discounted to $900 per course for teachers who already have a master's degree and are not enrolled in a Molloy master's degree. Students taking the courses as part of the master's degree must pay the regular rate of tuition.

The program does not have traditional deadline dates because courses are offered throughout the year and they do not follow a semester schedule. There are no defined overall start and end dates for the program. Therefore, you can apply to the program at any time. The registration process is rather simple because you are not applying for a Molloy degree. There is an online application that you need to complete, but that is for information purposes only. Everyone is accepted as long as you are a NY certified teacher. There is no application fee and GREs are not required. If you are enrolling in the program for the first time, there is a combined application/registration form that you will complete online. Once you register for the first time you will be sent an email within one to two business days with your username to login your student account to access the system for future registrations and to access Canvas, our online learning platform.
You should register at least a week before the course start date at the latest in order to register for the first time. After that you can register up until the day before the class, but then you run the risk that a course could be full- our courses do close.
All registrations are conducted online. Click here for the application/registration procedures. The online registration process differs if you are a continuing student or if you are a new student.
If you have any questions, contact Alina R. Haitz at email@example.com.
