The USDF University program provides recognition for USDF members who strive to continue their education through their participation in accredited educational opportunities. It also provides an accreditation structure for independently-organized events, allowing members to earn USDF credit for participating in accredited programs conducted by GMOs and other groups. For guidelines and other important documents, see our forms & documents page.

If you attended a USDF University Accredited Off-Campus program, but did not sign up for credit on-site, fill out the Credit Request Form and send it to USDF. Click here for details.
