Guidelines and Requirements for Content Area Add-on Certifications
In order to add Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, or Middle Level Education, an educator must meet the following pre-requisites:
Three course terms will be offered: May, Summer I (June), and Summer II (July). College credit will be awarded through Newberry College upon completion of the course. An official transcript can be requested for the State Department verification of add-on certification. All courses are completely online. The appropriate Praxis II Exam will also need to be completed before the state department can award an add-on certification.
To initiate an add-on request, a Request for Change/Action form must be submitted to the SCDE. This will inform you of the courses needed to receive the add-on certification in the area you seek. Please note, completing these courses will not guarantee an add-on certificate. You must complete the change/action form to determine course needs as well as pass the Praxis II in the specific area.
