Math Endorsement

The Math Endorsement, added onto an existing license, results in licensure to teach Middle School Math (Grades 5-8).

The Math Endorsement is optional for students earning a professional teaching license. The credits can be taken in addition to a student’s plan of study each semester as their schedule permits, pending noted prerequisites. The endorsement can be obtained after successful completion of all course requirements.
