Each certified course receives a QM Certification Mark indicating that the course has met Quality Matters Standards. Additionally, departments may award a $1,000 Course Improvement Stipend to faculty members for completing improvements needed to earn the QM course certification.
Course certification is valid for up to 5 years.
