Special Education Certification Only at the Graduate Level (Option 2)

The certification only program is structured to address the educational needs of graduate students who hold another teaching certificate and wish to obtain special education certification without earning the M.Ed. degree.

Applications are currently being accepted on a rolling basis.

Recent program changes are not yet reflected in the currently published Graduate Catalog.

Prospective graduate students who currently hold teaching certification and are seeking additional certification in Special Education will develop a program of study based upon their past coursework. Students will select special education certification at the PreK-8th grade level or 7th-12th grade level. Interested students may refer to additional information provided in the EDEX Graduate Student Handbook.
