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:

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 Winter semester. 


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   

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.
