Educational Leadership Tier II Certificate Program (Online)
The Educational Leadership Tier II Certificate Program is currently being redesigned to better serve our students. A restart date for the program has not been determined. Please continue to check this page for updated admission requirements and application deadlines.
The Educational Leadership Tier II Certification-only Program provides a unique opportunity for P-12 educational leaders to further develop the skills necessary for school administrative positions through a rigorous performance-based coursework/ program. This program is designed for those who already possess an Ed.S. or those who hold Tier I Educational Leadership Certification and are seeking Tier II Educational Leadership Certification. This 18 credit hour program is administered through a cohort model, and the course sequence is prescribed and provided to candidates at orientation. The 750 hours of clinical practice are job-embedded and performance-based throughout the program, and are guided cooperatively by the University and the school/district partner via Residence courses.
* Physical presence on campus is minimal and entails no more than eight (8) required campus visits.
