Certified Connecticut educators may add additional endorsements ("cross endorsements") to their existing teaching certificates through the passing of the appropriate Praxis content knowledge exam and the completion of at least 30 semester hours of coursework in the new endorsement area, as prescribed in the CT cross-endorsement regulations. More information is also available on the Connecticut Cross-Endorsements page. See the Application Instructions below.
