FEMA Procedure

FEMA Independent Study Program

College Credit for FEMA Independent Study Program (ISP) Courses

Baker University has approved many FEMA ISP courses for college credit. Students have the opportunity to take FEMA courses free of charge and apply them to a Baker degree program. Fees are required to transfer the credit, but it is an affordable option.

Download the pdfprocedure and course list.

Procedure

  1. Visit the FEMA training website: http://training.fema.gov/is/crslist.aspx?all=true. This page identifies all of the courses FEMA offers, but not all are available for Baker credit. Approved Baker courses are pdflisted here. Some courses are stand-alone, while other courses need to be combined for credit.

    Plan approximately 15 hours to complete a single credit.

  2. Before taking the courses, verify with your student services representative (SSR) that the courses will work for your degree completion plan. Baker has a technical credit maximum of 12 credits. Depending on previous transfer credit, students may go over this maximum by completing FEMA courses. Baker policy also states that a maximum of 30 credits can be transferred from assessed opportunities. This includes military credit, CLEP/DSST testing, and PLA portfolio credit. Your SSR can help ensure maximums are not exceeded.

  3. Upon approved course selection, click on the course link. On the right side is a box labeled "TAKE THIS COURSE." Depending on the course type, it will either have a link that says "Download Course Materials" or "Interactive Web-Based Course." Some courses are comprised of PDF materials to study independently and some have an interactive course.

  4. After completing the course, click on "Take Final Exam Online" to submit answers to the multiple-choice exam questions. To take these courses, students are required to be a United States citizen and give FEMA their social security number.

  5. Upon successfully completing the course, FEMA will email a PDF certificate. Save the certificate by using the course number and your first initial and last name as the document name (e.g., IS301_jstudent).

  6. Request access to the PLA portfolio on Moodle by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if not previously completed or have access.

  7. Upload the certificate(s) to the FEMA section (Topic 7) of the PLA portfolio. After all certificates are uploaded, complete the submission form and pay the submission fee of $100 online.

    If the PLA submission fee has been previously paid through another submission, simply email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., to confirm the FEMA documents are ready for processing.

  8. Certificates will be reviewed and processed within two weeks of submission. An invoice for the verification and documentation fee of $30 per credit will be sent via Baker email.

Fees

  • One-time submission fee of $100, due at the time of submission of certificates
  • $30.00 per credit verification and documentation fee, due after credits have been processed and invoiced directly via Baker email
