CLE Guidelines

*Disclaimer: The information provided in this document is in no way intended to be comprehensive. It is your responsibility to know and comply with all of your state’s MCLE regulations. For more information regarding your state’s specific reporting rules & regulations, please contact your state’s CLE authority.

For NAAG related CLE questions or concerns please email Parker Schmidt.

Credit Approval:

Credit is not immediately approved for courses.

Credit approval will take between 4-10 weeks after the training date, depending on the state. The Uniform Certificate of Attendance (“UCA”) certifies your attendance and represents a good faith estimate of the credit you are likely to receive, subject to your state’s individual CLE rules and regulations.

NAAG will compile and submit accreditation applications to the applicable CLE authorities. Accreditation applications will be submitted to your state’s CLE authority within 15 business days of the meeting’s conclusion.

Do not call your state’s CLE authority to inquire about credit until 6-8 weeks after the training date. They will be unable to assist you or provide you with information prior to 6-8 weeks after the training date.

Reporting Attendance:

Do not submit the UCA to NAAG. Complete it and retain it for your records and/or submit it to your state’s CLE authority, per your state’s rules & regulations.

If you are unsure what to do with the UCA, or how to report your attendance, contact your state’s CLE authority.

When attendance reporting is NOT NAAG’s responsibility: Follow your state’s rules and regulations. Contact your state’s CLE authority for more information.

Obtaining Course Approval Codes for states so required: Course Approval Codes are made available to NAAG on course approval notifications, which NAAG will receive 4-10 weeks after the training date. Obtain the Code from NAAG by emailing the program specialist who facilitated the particular training you attended. Their contact information can be found on the front of the UCA.

To ensure that your request is not lost, your email should include the following information and mirror the following example:

1. State approval code needed

2. Meeting title

To: Program Specialist’s email address

3. Meeting location

4. Meeting start date

Subject line: VA; NAGTRI Depositions, Orlando, FL, 03/24/14

Body: Alice, I am seeking the Virginia Course Approval Code for the NAGTRI Depositions training that took place in Orlando, Florida, on 03/24/14. Once NAAG receives the code, please make it available to me via email. Thank you,

If you will be seeking CLE credit for a webinar and plan to call into the webinar to attend, please email the program support with your phone number to receive credit.

When attendance reporting is NAAG’s responsibility: In some states, as an accredited provider, NAAG is responsible for directly reporting your attendance. If so required, NAAG will report your attendance (to multiple states, if you are so barred). In a subset of these states, attendance cannot be reported until after credit has been approved. As such, it can take between 5-11 weeks for credit to post to your account.

Contact NAAG if more than 6 weeks have passed, and your credit still has not posted.

States in which NAAG is responsible for reporting attendance:

AL, DE, GA, ID, IN, LA, NE, NM, NC, OH, OK, OR, PA, SC, RI, TX, TN, UT, WA, WV

States that must approve credit before attendance can be reported:

AL, GA, LA, NE, OH, PA, RI, TX, TN, WA

States with an approved jurisdiction policy:

Some states accept credits approved by other MCLE jurisdictions. If your state has an approved jurisdiction policy, request a copy of another MCLE state’s approval letter from NAAG, as backup that the course is eligible for credit, and then self-report your credits.
