ESOL Endorsement – Online

Curriculum

To complete the ESOL endorsement, candidates must (1) complete all ESOL coursework with a B average or higher, (2) pass the ESOL teacher licensure exam, and (3) submit a satisfactory portfolio.
After completing these requirements, you will be eligible for adding the endorsement to your Oregon teaching license.

ESOL coursework

The required ESOL coursework for all endorsement candidates is 18 credit hours:

We ask students to start with ED 522 and ED 572. ED 510 requires departmental approval at least one term in advance and can only be taken after all other coursework has been completed with a B average or higher.
