Questions & Answers
Q: What's coming next?
A: We will continue to add new content on ClassicalU every month. During our launch period, we’d love to hear feedback on what you would particularly like to see—for example, electives, individual lectures, or specific course topics. You can share feedback with us here.
Q: Can I receive in-service, individual education, professional development, or CE credit for completing courses?
A: Individual users are welcome to submit their ClassicalU studies to accrediting organizations for approval. It is up to the accrediting agency whether or not the content on ClassicalU qualifies. We provide specific course information on each course page that may be referenced for this purpose (e.g. course descriptions, length of video lessons, instructor bios, etc.). We also plan to develop our own K–12 classical teacher certification in the coming year.
Q: Will courses I complete now count toward future CE certification?
A: Yes—as a subscriber, you will be able to track your progress through each course. When we add the certification for each level, you will receive credit for any courses you have already completed. Some additional requirements may be added later to count toward receiving full credit (e.g., a written response to a course), but everything you complete now will count toward certification.
Q: What is the difference between an individual subscription and a group enrollment?
A: An individual account is a subscription for a single user. Group enrollments provide multiple accounts at a discounted rate for schools, co-ops, or other organizations of 10 or more people who would like access to ClassicalU.
Q: Can I purchase just 1 subscription and share it among my teachers and/or staff?
A: Each subscription is intended for one person. ClassicalU is designed to offer the equivalent of 6 years (or more) of teacher training, providing a clear path toward becoming a mentor-level teacher in the classical education movement. Our online courses are designed to provide full professional development and ongoing (rather than episodic) training toward mastery for teachers and co-op leaders; therefore, we encourage each user to purchase an individual account in order to take full advantage of the courses and resources offered. Individual subscriptions will also enable teachers/leaders to consume the courses in small increments at their leisure, therefore helping them to contemplate and review material at a restful, meaningful pace. This is why we offer substantial discounts for group enrollments.
Q: Is there any free content available on ClassicalU? Can I try before I buy?
A: Yes! You are able to preview a portion of all of our courses without a paid account. Click on any course to view the sample content.
Q: How many people qualify as a group for a group enrollment?
A: Group enrollments begin at 10 users. Groups of 10–24 users save 25%, and groups with 25+ users save 50%. See our pricing page here.
Q: If I purchase a group enrollment, how do members of the group access the content?
A: After you purchase a group enrollment, you will be provided with an online form in which you can list the name and email address of each member of your group. This will then enable each registered member in your group to log in with his or her email or user name. This list of purchased subscriptions is available at any time on the Dashboard of the individual who purchased the group enrollment. The Dashboard is located on the black bar on the top right (the circle with a person in it).
Q: Can my school submit a purchase order for ClassicalU subscriptions?
Q: How do I add more members/teachers to a group enrollment later?
A: To purchase additional subscriptions at a later time, please call our office at 866-730-0711, ext. #1, to take advantage of the discounted rate.
Q: Is ClassicalU a recurring subscription?
A: All subscription plans automatically renew unless you preemptively cancel your subscription, which can be done from your Dashboard or by calling us at 866-730-0711 ext #1.
Q: Can I pay yearly and save money?
A: Yes! You save 10% by paying annually. Individual members save over $20, and group savings begin at $175. You can view a pricing chart here under the Pricing tab (next to the Description tab).
