ESL Endorsement sample schedule starting Fall 2017


The state of Illinois may require additional coursework for any educational endorsement.  Students should contact their Regional Office of Education for a transcript review to determine which courses they need to fulfill the full endorsement.  Students will also contact their Regional Office of Education to make application for having the endorsement added to their current teaching certificate.  An official Greenville University transcript will be required.  See this website for information about how to request an official Greenville University transcript after your grades are posted: http://www.greenville.edu/academics/transcript.html.
