If you are certified to teach in Georgia, our reading endorsement may be added to your teaching certificate.
Students who take these graduate-level reading endorsement courses are either not seeking a degree or are enrolled in another degree program and choose to infuse these courses into their program (in consultation with their advisor). Reading endorsement courses are offered both online and in-person.
To qualify for a reading endorsement to be added to your initial teaching certificate, you must:
November 1 (for spring)
April 1 (for summer and fall)
Almost all in-state students begin their studies at UGA paying limited tuition or fees. Please note that these amounts are subject to change and are meant to give prospective students an idea of the costs associated with a degree at the University of Georgia College of Education.
Students may qualify for a variety of assistantships, scholarships, and other financial awards to help offset the cost of tuition, housing, and other expenses.
Most graduate students at UGA are not assigned to a faculty advisor until after admittance. A close working relationship with your advisor is paramount to progressing through your program of study.
All students must have successfully completed (grade B- or higher) an introductory reading instruction and assessment course prior to applying to or beginning this program. Acceptable pre-requisite courses include:
The three required courses for the reading endorsement must have been completed at UGA after July 1, 2000, when the endorsement went into effect. We do not accept transfer credits for the three required reading endorsement courses.
