Once that financial obligation is fulfilled our course director will contact Educational Outreach with your information. This must be done before you can register with the Graduate College for credit. Once cleared by the course, our course director will send you additional information regarding the graduate credit registration process. For those students working on a Masters Degree in Music with an emphasis in Orff Schulwerk, Music 642 (Level 1), 643 (Level II) and 644 (Level III) are required credits for your degree. The cost per credit for Summer Term is not determined until March-April of 2017.

You may contact Educational Outreach or the Graduate Office for costs.
The Orff Levels Teacher Education/Certification Program has been approved by the state for PDE credit. The PDE credit will benefit those of you who are not seeking a Masters Degree in Orff Schulwerk, but who are seeking credits towards license renewal or salary advancement. The course $575 registration fee to Board of Regents will cover the instructors' salary. PDE registration will take place on site from 8:00-8:30 a.m. on July 10, 2017. There is an additional $10 processing fee for the PDE credit. Please do not include the $10 with your $575 registration course fee. The PDE office will make you aware of payment once our course director submits your name to the PDE office following your July 10 registration. You may not take the course for UNLV graduate credit and PDE credit concurrently. If you have already completed Level I, Level II or Level III you can repeat them for PDE credit. Grading for the PDE will be pass/fail. 100% attendance, active participation and completion of all assigned tasks are required for a passing grade.

UNLV Orff Loyalty Reward Program

The UNLV Orff course has offered reduced registration fees for local teachers for the past several years.  In 2016, we extended the reduced registration fees to include anyone who has supported our course through their attendance in the past and those who have chosen to repeat a Level with us. In 2017, we will continue our discount program to encourage our local teachers to begin their Orff Levels and provide incentive for those who have attended our course in the past to further their professional development by completing Levels II. To participate in the Loyalty Reward program participants must complete the Loyalty Reward Program Registration form and submit it by April 1.  We have the early registration deadline to help us anticipate course participation for planning purposes, thus avoiding late course cancellation issues.

The UNLV Orff Loyalty Reward Program works like this:

If you can in good faith commit to attending the course held at UNLV July 10-21, 2017, by April 1, 2017, and you are a CCSD teacher Or have completed a Level with us in the past, you qualify for our money saving program.  All Loyalty Reward Program Registration Forms are due by April 1, 2017. The registration fee is due prior to June 1, 2017.  The Loyalty Reward Program Registration Form is located on our web site:  If you don’t find it there, please contact Course Director, June Eshelman, via email at and she will email the form to you.  CCSD teachers will receive the Loyalty Reward Program Registration Form along with the course brochure via CCSD mail.
