How You Learn

Synchronous Online: This is a fully online cohort. For five nights out of each 8-week course, an online class session will be held from 5:45 to 8:45 p.m. during which you are required to sign in and actively participate. These synchronous online class meetings will be supplemented by additional online activities which may include assignments, webinars or chats, materials, discussion threads, assessments and/or group activities completed electronically outside of class. This program is offered as a stand-alone endorsement program or as an endorsement program embedded in an MAT or M. Ed. program.

*Students must report a minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Applicants with a GPA lower than 3.0 or an identified writing deficiency may be considered for provisional admission. Provisionally admitted students may be required to take one or more writing classes prior to or during the first semester. Decisions about additional admission requirements are determined by the University Graduate Council after a complete review of all materials presented by the applicant.

Upon completion of this program candidates will have earned a Dyslexia Endorsement to be added on to their current certification.
