Online Special Education Certificate

Program Requirements

This CU Denver hybrid endorsement program offers you the opportunity to obtain a self-paced special education endorsement. 

This nine course SPED program (26 credits) is designed for teachers already licensed to teach in Colorado. Some classes are fully-online and others are evening face-to-face classes, which you can mix and match.

Specifically, this is program is perfect if you are:

  • A teacher without the formal credentials required to serve students with disabilities.
  • Already in possession of a general education license and wish to build on that expertise.
  • Looking to improve your ability to meet the needs of all learners.

An optional four courses and portfolio can be completed to earn a Masters in Special Education. 

{*Please note - that there is an on-campus component to the Special Education Generalist Endorsement program.} ​
