PA Act 48 Reporting for Educators
The university serves many educators in Western Pennsylvania. These students enroll in many diverse courses and/or activities offered by Carnegie Mellon, which may qualify for PA Act 48 Reporting for Educators development.
To ensure that a particular course will meet Act 48 requirements, the student should check with their school employer or, if the student is not currently employed as an educator in Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) should be contacted.
Credit-bearing Act 48 courses are reported by the University Registrar's Office. Non-credit Act 48 eligible activities are reported through the Office of the Assistant Vice Provost for Educational Outreach.
What does the student need to do to report credit-bearing courses?
Student record privacy law prohibits the release of most information including courses and grades to any third party without prior permission of the student. In order to authorize the release of Act48 information to PDE, the student should submit a request to include:
- Full name
- Student ID number
- Current mailing address
- Course number
- Course name
- Course units
- Semester course(s) taken
Requests may be submitted by email to email@example.com, faxed to 412-268-6651, or mailed to the University Registrar's Office, Carnegie Mellon University, Warner Hall A19, 5000 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213.
What happens next?
Once the University Registrar's Office receives the request, we will submit Act 48 credit-bearing courses to the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE). The student will receive a letter of confirmation, which should be retained in the student's files.
