Teacher Certification

Student Teaching Endorsements

When students are in their final semester of the program, they will begin the process of applying for their certificate.  This includes beginning the electronic process for the State of Illinois via their Educator Certification System / ECS.

Students will also initiate an internal process through the program offices by submitting endorsement forms that indicate the areas in which they have completed coursework, taken the state content test field exam, and are considered "highly qualified" according to ISBE and the provisions of the "No Child Left Behind" federal legislation.
