Additional Resources for Added Endorsements

To add an endorsement to your Colorado teaching license, you must complete at least 24 hours of relevant coursework (see endorsement worksheets for specific content requirements), or pass the appropriate approved content exam. Once you have completed requirements, you may apply for your endorsement on the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) website. Please see the FAQ for more information.

When applying for an added endorsement through CDE, you will be expected to describe to the department how your experience (course credit, professional development, work experience, school/district in-service, etc.) meets the requirements and expectations listed within the endorsement. Plan to detail your background and persuade the department that those experiences have given you the breadth and depth required for the given content area.
