OCT | 20 | 2010


Beginning this Friday, October 25th, the University of Oklahoma will no longer house your AIA Continuing Education credits. The entire continuing education program will now be housed at AIA National, and we are excited at the possibilities this new program will offer members!

During the past several months, component staff and members have been data testing the new program to ensure the seamless transfer of information, and we are anticipating that the event will proceed without any glitches. That being said, to be safe, we encourage you to print off a copy of your transcript this week. You can do so simply by entering your AIA member number at this link (http://sparky.occe.ou.edu/ouaia/authentication/login.cfm?role=Member&CFID=1332852&CFTOKEN=49862100). Keep this printed copy for back-up.

The complete history of your continuing education credits will be available on the new system after November 15th. We will send you login information at that time. If you have any questions, or if you find that you have any missing CE credits, please contact Diana Smith.
