Endorsement Program Course Sequence

Every university submits a DIFFERENT four course sequence to the State Department of Education for approval. JMU is one of only a few university endorsement programs that includes a practicum to students NOT enrolled in a master's degree program. You MUST seek approval to transfer credit from one university endorsement program to another. If you have specific questions, please contact the JMU program coordinator.
