The ESOL Program is available as a teaching license endorsement and a graduate certificate, depending on your situation. 

Applications for the Ecampus graduate certificates open each term following default graduate school timelines.


Currently Licensed Teachers 

Currently licensed teachers are required to contact Holly Mitchell to create a planned program. Currently licensed teachers apply through the OSU Graduate School. 

The application requires the names and contact information for three professional references and transcripts of all institutions attended. Contact Holly Mitchell to receive a code to be used on the online application.
