Birth through Grade Three Inclusive Settings Endorsement

Return to Departments Return to: Departments

Requirements for certification for preschools, kindergarten and special education through grade 3. (Also requires the completion of the elementary education major.)

Total credits required: 36-40


  • The online program outlined above meets requirements for the state of Iowa. Students who are teaching elsewhere should check with their state’s department of education to determine if NWC’s unified endorsement is comparable to and can be substituted for an endorsement in their state. The endorsement enhances your teaching license but does not lead to licensure for un-licensed educators; it is for teachers who have or are working toward a degree in elementary education.
  • The unified endorsement authorizes you to teach in integrated settings for children from birth to age 8. It varies from the early childhood special education endorsement, which authorizes the holder to teach in contained special education settings from birth to age 8.
  • Requires certification in Infant CPR and First Aid.
