Why Choose the Secondary Endorsement to Elementary Provisional Certificate?

This program is designed for persons with a Secondary Provisional Certificate who are seeking an Elementary Endorsement. Students seeking this endorsement must complete all major/minor and planned program requirements for Elementary Provisional Certification. Course requirements for elementary teaching majors and minors are described on their individual program sheets. Students must also have a course that focuses on preadolescents and early adolescents.

Candidates for an elementary-level teaching certificate must pass the Elementary Education test. Candidates for an elementary-level teaching certificate who wish to teach in classrooms in grades 6-8 in specific subject areas must also pass the appropriate subject-area tests in order to qualify for the endorsements. Students wanting the ZS endorsement must also complete the early childhood minor.

Please contact the School of Education Certification Officer at 231-591-3642 for additional information on state requirements.
