Adding an Endorsement to a Connecticut Teaching Certificate
Background Check for WGU: If you are enrolled in an endorsement program that requires a background check for your practicum, you will only need to complete the Connecticut background clearance requirement. A Utah background check is not required for students enrolled in an endorsement program.
PROGRAM SPECIFIC INFORMATION
Application for additional endorsements can be online through the Connecticut Educator Certification System (CECS). You must also compile your Statement of Preparing Higher Education Institution, official transcript(s) of coursework completed in the endorsement area, and official Praxis score report.
Complete the top portion of the Statement of Preparing Higher Education Institution form with your personal information, and send the form to WGU's Licensure Office via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 1-801-401-7961. The Licensure Office will complete the form and mail it back to you to include with your application materials.
