ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) Endorsement Add-on

Teacher Candidates electing to add coursework toward an (ESOL) endorsement to their program
will be asked to submit an application declaring that intent during the beginning of Winter term.
The addition of the coursework toward the endorsement requires the addition of the summer term
to the teacher candidate’s schedule and the postponement of the portfolio and oral exam until
summer term. As stated earlier, teacher candidates are eligible to participate in commencement
at the end of spring term, with the understanding that the degree will not be conferred until the
conclusion of all requirements. Candidates will still be eligible to receive their teaching license
upon successful completion of all required elements at the end of spring term.

Teacher candidates wishing to pursue the ESOL coursework toward an addon
endorsement will take additional coursework in spring and an additional summer.
