Endorsements : The minimum course requirements for teaching fields for elementary and high school certificates are defined by the State of Illinois and are listed on the certificate as an endorsement. One or more endorsements may be earned by completing requirements for the elementary or high school certification pro- grams at Illinois State University. Additional endorsements may be earned through the com- pletion of the specified course work, and in most cases, by passing the State content test in the endorsement area. The Illinois Board of Education determines this process. Contact your advisor for information on requirements for endorsements. University-Wide Teacher Education Program T E

102 T E General Education To meet certification requirements of the Illinois State Board of Education, all Teacher Education programs must meet general education requirements defined for the institution’s approved entitlement programs. Effective fall 1998, all native students entering Illinois State University will com- plete the University’s General Education Program. For teacher education students, completion of Illinois State University’s General Education Program ensures that the general education require- ments for teacher certification have been met. Transfer Students: Several options satisfy general education requirements for certification relative to transfer students. The Illinois Articulation Initiative General Education program, including a global perspective course, may be the general education component for Illinois State entitlement programs for the transfer student who does not choose to complete the University’s general education pro- gram. Other options include Illinois State’s University Studies general education (97-98 or earlier catalogs), an approved baccalaureate-ori- ented A.A., A.S., A.A.T. or a bachelor’s degree from a regional accredited institution, including a global perspective course. All of these options must include at least one global perspective course (Non-Western Studies). Completion of a course for the Global Studies graduation requirement will meet this requirement. Completion of General Education Program requirements does not ensure that the require- ments for certification have been met. Students are reminded that some courses are required by specific programs: Introductory Psychology is a prerequisite for Educational Psychology; a grade of C or better in an English Composition course and a Speech course are required for Admission to Professional Studies.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
