Special Education Endorsement


The Special Education Endorsement Program, available on the Eugene and Forest Grove campuses, allows individuals who hold a current teaching license to add a Special Education Endorsement with Early Childhood/Elementary (ECE/Elem) and/or Middle School/High School (MS/HS) authorizations.

The program entails 18 months of coursework and practicum experiences. Candidates also may work toward a master of arts in teaching or master of education degree concurrently. 

Candidates must pass the NES Special Education test for licensure, as well as the ORELA Multiple Subjects Exam to be considered highly qualified (often completed as part of an Initial License).
