When it became necessary for me to add an English teaching certification to my credentials I wasn't sure what route to take.  Fortunately, my superintendent at the time was familiar with the Add-On Licensure Program at UW-Oshkosh.  After a review of my transcripts my path to licensure was laid out.

There are many aspects to the program that I found appealing:  
  • I was able to select courses that fit my needs in order to fulfill requirements.
  • There was a life experience option to grant credit for knowledge and skills that I already have.
  • The website was easy to navigate and all of the forms I needed were easily accessible.

I felt supported in every aspect of the program, from my first contact to the completion of the requirements.  The communication and guidance I have received was most helpful.  I highly recommend the program to anyone looking to add an additional license.

Thank you to the UW-Oshkosh Add-On Licensure Program for helping me achieve my goal!
