Library Media Certification

Additional Endorsement: The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has developed a variety of ways to help individuals earn school library media certification. Those with teacher certification will seek an Additional Endorsement. To request a transcript evaluation or apply for a new area of certification, submit the DESE online Additional application. To add by coursework, copies of transcripts must be submitted if transcripts are not currently on file with DESE.  To determine if transcripts are currently on file, individuals must log into their personal DESE certification account.  Click on the education link located in the menu to the left of the profile screen.  The screen must indicate that transcripts have been received.  Transcripts should be mailed to Educator Certification, PO Box 480, Jefferson City, MO  65102.  DESE does not accept faxed, scanned, or emailed transcripts.

Initial Certification Requirements: For students who do not have initial teacher certification, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has developed requirements for certification which include professional education requirements and subject area requirements (page 6). Each of these requirements can be met by courses available at the University of Central Missouri. To develop a certification plan, contact Clinical Services and Certification:
