The Special Education Certificate of Completion is a 12-credit option for MAT program teacher candidates or for external applicants who hold a current teaching certificate from an approved institution of higher education and/or are practicing teachers. The certificate is not a degree or licensure program. External candidates may earn the certificate by completing 12 credits of online special education courses as listed under Curriculum. Current certified teachers interested in the Special Education Certificate of Completion online program should contact Graduate Admissions.

For internal candidates for the certificate, the 12 credits required for the Special Education Certificate of Completion are earned through three 4-credit online courses offered during the Fall, J-term, Spring and Summer.  

MAT program candidates interested in the Special Education Certificate of Completion should notify the program contact, Christina Pavlak or Judith Falaro, by February of their junior year (or the start of the first semester for candidates in the five-semester MAT program).
