Special Education Transition Specialist Endorsement
The Special Education Transition Specialist Endorsement program is being redesigned at the present time. Please continue to check this page for updated program start information, admission requirements and application deadlines.
The Special Education Transition Specialist Endorsement program is designed for individuals who hold or eligible for a valid Georgia level four or higher renewable professional teaching certificate or equivalent state-issued, clear, renewable teaching certificate in special education. This is the only state-approved Special Education Transition Specialist Endorsement program offered by a university in Georgia.
The Special Education Transition Specialist Endorsement program develops highly skilled special education transition specialists who can demonstrate and explicitly explain:
- career development and transition planning for students with special needs;
- the vocational assessment for students with special needs;
- inter-agency planning and service for students with special needs as they transition to adulthood; and
- appropriate community environments, methods for linking community-based instruction, and the inter-agency agreement methodology for preparing students with multiple and severe disabilities for adulthood.
For all Online Programs:
Federal Law requires colleges and universities to make certain disclosures to prospective students of these programs. These disclosures include information on the University’s authority to operate outside of Georgia, complaint processes, adverse actions, and refunds.
For required disclosures in general with regard to online programs offered by the University, visit the Office of Legal Affairs website.
The College of Education anticipates that graduates of the Special Education Transition Specialist Endorsement program will seek state license or certification.
