Middle School Endorsement (ESPB-Approved)

The online Middle School Endorsement is satisfied by taking all four courses (ten semester hours) including 20 hours of applied experience.

These professional development classes for teachers are offered online and are approved for use toward the North Dakota Education Standards and Practices Board (ESPB) Middle School Endorsement. The EDUC 600/2000 classes required for this endorsement are professional development credit and are not eligible for use on a graduate program of study. Note: NDSU's K-12 professional development class number will change from 600 to 2000 (ex. EDUC 2000). Please note this change will be applied systemwide to the North Dakota University System (NDUS) institutions.
