Special Education Endorsement Program
The Special Education (SPED) Endorsement Program consists of graduate-level credits, which are taken over 14 months (starting one summer and going through the following summer). This program is a cohort program for current educators, and there is an application process which is best completed by February 1 prior to the summer the educator wishes to begin the program.
The full SPED program has four weeks scheduled during the two summers. The credits in this program are $595 per credit.
Candidates in the 10-month and 18-month MAT programs may earn a Special Education (SPED) Endorsement as well. To qualify for the SPED endorsement program, a candidate must have experience in a SPED environment. Full-time MAT candidates will begin the summer before the start of the full-time MAT program. Candidates will complete all courses by the end of the summer term following MAT graduation.
Current educators must submit the following application materials:
- Application form
- Official transcript from the institution where license preparation was done
- Copy of current Oregon teaching license (from TSPC)
- Professional resume
- Criminal Background forms
