Important Information about ESOL Endorsement
The ESOL endorsement is a requirement for graduation, and it involves more than just taking the ESOL courses. You are documenting the equivalent to 300 hours of ESOL training.
You will have your ESOL binder checked in each ESOL course you take to make sure that you have completed your work from previous ESOL courses and have received the check-off sheet and that everything is in your binder
You are responsible to make sure that you complete the ESOL Late Field Experience in one of your internships, or if that is not possible, that you make other arrangements to complete this requirement (Check other options in the ESOL Office).
You are responsible to get the proper documentation from your ESOL-infused courses
You are responsible to get a final check-off of your ESOL binder in the ESOL Office before graduating.
Any questions please refer to the ESOL Office, EDU 266, (813) 974-6880.
