Participation Criteria for online English endorsement courses:

The endorsement courses are designed specifically for Utah educators. Acceptance into the courses is based on this prioritized criteria:

  1. Utah teachers on SAEP (State Approved Endorsement Plan) in English (that is, already teaching a secondary English course with two years to complete requirements);
  2. Licensed Utah teachers seeking an English endorsement who need the course to fulfill a requirement;
  3. Licensed Utah teachers with an English endorsement and who are already teaching in a Utah school.

Course Schedule

All four courses are offered two times a year: Fall semester and Spring semester. 

Costs

There is no tuition fee for these courses, but there is a required recording fee ($21/credit), payable to Southern Utah University (SUU). Questions about this fee should be directed to k12inservice@suu.edu   

Some courses may have additional modest costs. Courses may require the purchase of course materials including but not limited to texts, digital resources, and/or professional organization memberships. 

Registration

Educators may register for a MAXIMUM of two English online endorsement courses per term. Registrations beyond the maximum will be automatically dropped.

Registration for Fall 2021 will run August 16 through September 6, 2021
