Add-on Endorsement Options for Licensed Teachers

Elementary Education

Teachers currently holding an active teaching license in Virginia may pursue this option to add an endorsement in Elementary Education PK-6.  Required coursework is determined following a careful review of the student’s transcripts, as the number of courses needed to add this endorsement varies greatly. A 300-hour field experience is required as part of the program. (This add-on endorsement program is also available as part of a Master of Education degree program)

Gifted Education

Teachers currently holding an active teaching license in Virginia may pursue this option to add an endorsement in Gifted Education K-12.  For most students, four courses are required (three of which are offered online). A 45-hour field experience is required as part of the program.  (This add-on endorsement program is also available as part of a Master of Education degree program)

Special Education

Teachers currently holding an active teaching license in Virginia may pursue this option to add an endorsement in Special Education: General Curriculum K-12.  For most students, 4-5 courses are required.  A 300-hour field experience is required as part of the program. (This add-on endorsement program is also available as part of a Master of Education degree program)
