Adding an Endorsement To a Temporary
To add an endorsement to a valid Florida Temporary Certificate, you must:
- Submit a complete online application (a complete application includes the appropriate processing fee), and
- Meet specialization in the subject you wish to add.
Subject Specialization for an endorsement is met in one of two ways:
- Complete the course requirements listed in State Board Rule for the endorsement, or
- Complete a Florida school district's approved inservice add-on program for the endorsement (contact your district staff development office for more information).
Once you have added an endorsement to your Temporary Certificate, the endorsement will carry over to your Professional Certificate when you complete requirements for the Professional Certificate in your subject. Be sure to request the endorsement along with your subject on your application for the Professional Certificate.
Note: Certification requirements are subject to change! It is essential that you apply for the additional subject before you begin completing requirements. To ensure that you are completing the required steps to add the subject to your certificate, the Bureau of Educator Certification will provide you with a Statement of Status of Eligibility that officially outlines the requirements you need to complete for that subject. The Bureau cannot guarantee your path to eligibility for the subject until your application form has been received and completed.
