Early Childhood Generalist Endorsement (Grades 4-5)

This program is not accepting new admits as of the Summer 24 semester.


An endorsement to teach grades 4-5 can be added to an existing Early Childhood License (PK-3) by successfully completing an approved Early Childhood endorsement program.

The Ohio Board of Regents determines minimum requirements for teachers’ licenses, and any changes in those requirements become effective immediately at Cleveland State University.

Admission Criterion

Acceptance into this endorsement program requires students to currently hold a teaching license in early childhood education (PK-3).

Multiple Indicators of Program Quality/Effectiveness

On a regular basis (twice annually), faculty involved in the program will review the effectiveness of the program, using multiple indicators of program quality. The criteria for these four core assignments will be quite challenging, and all students must pass all four of these assignments with a grade of B or better. The last program quality indicator will be an exit interview given to all program completers.
