VI Adding an Endorsement to a Teaching License

Adding an Endorsement to a U.S. Virgin Islands Teaching License

Note:  While we do our best to give you accurate and up to date information about your state requirements, we are not infallible.  State requirements change frequently.  It is your responsibility, and in your best interest, to double check certification and licensure requirements with your state’s Department of Education.


To add a new endorsement area to a current U.S. Virgin Islands teaching license, you must meet all certification requirements for the new area with the exception of student teaching.  Educators must have 26 semester credits in the new area and the completion of teacher pedagogy/methodology courses. More information can be found at the US Virgin Islands Department of Education website.
