Using SUNY CPD Points at SUNY Empire State College

SUNY Center for Professional Development “points” for SUNY Empire State College are managed by the Center for Mentoring, Learning and Academic Innovation.  When SUNY Empire faculty and staff select “CPD points” as the method of payment for an event or a course, use of these points requires approval by CMLAI; points are available on a first come, first served basis.  If the annual points allotted to the college have been exhausted, the individual’s home center/office will be responsible for payment.  Please note that registration confirmation does not validate the use of CPD points; official approvals/denials of the use of points are sent to the individual by CMLAI via email.  Associated travel and lodging costs are the responsibility of the individual’s center/office. For more information about CPD points, please visit
