Endorsement Worksheet Instructions
Endorsement Worksheets are used to evaluate your endorsement preparation coursework and relevant experiences to determine if future coursework is needed to meet the minimum expectations.
- Download the appropriate endorsement worksheet(s). An Endorsement Worksheet for each endorsement you are applying for (maximum of two) must be included with your application. These worksheets are in MS Word. You can download, print and complete by hand or download and complete on your computer and then print. If you would like to receive a hard copy in the mail, please contact Maggie Foran.
- Please make sure the worksheets are completely filled in and legible. Convert semester credits to quarter credits. In general, 1 semester hour equals 1.5 quarter credits.
- A course used to fulfill a general education prerequisite on the Master in Teaching application may also be used to fulfill an endorsement expectation. All coursework listed must have earned a grade equivalent of a C (2.0 based on 4.0 system) or satisfactory evaluation to be acceptable for fulfilling endorsement expectations.
- Submit your completed worksheets to the Office of Admissions with your application.
- Save your completed Word document for each endorsement. You will review the document when applying for student teaching.
- A sample worksheet is provided with both an English Language Arts example and an Elementary Education example.
- For Evergreen coursework, please indicate the program title and the appropriate credit equivalencies.
- It is possible that a course may count toward more than one endorsement expectation. For example, a calculus course could be used to fulfill endorsement expectations for both science and math.
- It is possible that a course may count toward more than one subject area under a single endorsement, depending on the depth and breadth of the course work and the total number of credits earned. If this is the case, you must divide the credits of the course among the subject areas. For example, an 8-credit course titled Geography of American Government might meet the following social studies endorsement expectations: 4 credits of geography and 4 credits of civics.
- When course titles do not readily indicate course content, an applicant may be asked to supply copies of syllabi, course descriptions, reading lists and/or letters of verification from appropriate faculty in order to assist the Certification Officer with transcript evaluation.
