Endorsements - Middle Level

Under current requirements, to qualify to teach in Illinois at the middle level (departmentalized fifth through eighth grades), an individual must hold either an elementary, secondary, or K-12 teaching certificate and qualify for middle level endorsements. To qualify for middle level endorsements, an individual must complete the required "Middle Level" course work AND the required 18 s.h. of content course work.  In anticipation these requirements will be changing when ISBE implements new middle level endorsement requirements, please check with your academic advisor or the licensure officer at 309/298-1434.
