Upon completion of coursework and passing the exams, candidates submit an application to the State to receive the endorsement.  Be sure to have your exam results sent to UT as well as the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) so that our “e-signer” will receive notification of your results and verify to ODE that you have completed all the requirements for the endorsement.

Many students choose to pair a certificate with a degree program, discuss all of your options with your academic adviser.


The University of Toledo is regionally accredited by the North Central Association (NCA) and is authorized to offer degrees online. The Judith Herb College of Education is accredited by The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).

State Departments of Education set requirements for educator licensure and certification. It is highly recommended that students who seek admission to a University of Toledo, Judith Herb College of Education online program for endorsement, initial educator certification, or licensure in their home state contact their home state’s Department of Education to verify that the desired program and its graduates will meet the eligibility criteria for those credentials. The website of The National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification has a directory of state offices of certification.
