A note about ACT 48 

The Pennsylvania Association For College Admission Counseling is not a provider of ACT 48 credits. However, the association provides Certificates of Attendance (COA) for those who complete our professional development programs. For the financial aid online workshop, for example, a COA indicating 1.5 credit hours will be provided for attendees who complete the entire online workshop. The Pennsylvania Department of Education requires a minimum of 3 credit hours for PD opportunities. Some districts/Intermediate Units may bundle multiple certificates to award credit hours. Please contact your school district and/or intermediate unit regarding submission of these certificates.

**Please Note: Certificates of Attendance can NOT be issued for viewing the recording. They are only for those who register for and attend a LIVE online workshop

This workshop is aimed at anyone who wants to develop a better understanding of LGBTQIA+ terminology, gay culture, professional resources for queer students, and more. We will also discuss what colleges may offer in terms of resources and how that may affect a student’s choice. This session will feature highly interactive exercises that require full participation. 


(Please note: The content, language and conversations may be uncomfortable for some, but are vital for the work that we all need to do.)
