Gift Certificates

Purchase an NDSU Gift Certificate toward a professional development (PD) credit for a K-12 educator you know. Gift certificates come in $10, $25, and $50 denominations and have no expiration date. (You can request larger or smaller denominations too.)

Gift certificates for PD credit make a great gift for a K-12 teacher, because the teacher gets to save on professional development credits that are required to maintain their teaching license, but also schools, parents, colleagues, and the community benefit from the knowledge these teachers learn in their classes. Gift certificates also make excellent teacher awards, PTA/PTO teacher appreciation gifts, and you can put it on your wish list for family and friends to purchase them for you.  

How to Order

You may order a gift certificate in one of two ways.

  1. In the name of the individual you would like to give it to. You will need to know their email address. Note that these individuals will receive the gift certificate code immediately after you purchase it.
  2. In your own name and gift it to another individual. This works well when you are giving the gift certificate for a holiday or birthday and you do not want them to know about it until the actual day. It also works well for those times when you are giving an award and you either don't know who will be selected yet or if you know their name but are surprising them with the award. If you choose to do it this way, you can download our fillable PDF gift certificate and enter the gift certificate code that gets emailed to you. The individual you give the gift certificate to can use the code on our website to pay for a class they enroll in.

Follow these steps or watch the tutorial video to order a gift certificate.
