Endorsement Process

Florida Department of Education - Certification

When you graduate from USF with your ESOL Endorsement, it will appear on your final transcript along with the statement of certification in your field of teaching. 

When you apply to the Florida Department of Education for your certification, you should also apply for your ESOL Endorsement. You should pay the Florida Department of Education the corresponding fee for both your Teaching Certification and ESOL Endorsement. Note: The ESOL Endorsement will only appear on your transcript AFTER you graduate.
