Units Info 

North Coast School of Education partners with three universities: UOP, HSU and Simpson U. Each university has a different price and number of units available.

* HSU is most popular university participants use because it's least expensive. They offer 3 units per semester for the Candidate and 2 units for the Mentor. The cost is $50 per unit with a $25 late fee if they register after the semester closes. Registration is typically open during the semesters and units are available up to one year after program year completion. However, HSU is in the process of changing their registration system and we do not yet know how that will affect our participants.

* UOP offers 4 units per semester for both the Candidate and Mentor at $200 a semester. They do not charge a late fee. Units are available only after semester completion and for only one year.

* Simpson U offers 3 units per semester for both the Candidate and Mentor at $175 per semester. Units are only available after semester completion for a short time. See their website for deadline restrictions.
