Choose one of three program start dates: January, May, or August. Because each course is offered at least two semesters every year, students can complete the program at a pace that works best for them—whether that means completing all courses in one year, enrolling in one course per semester, or taking most coursework during the summer months. Classes are delivered 100% online and there are no required class meeting times. Students who register for at least 4 credit hours per semester are eligible for federal financial aid.
Bowling Green State University offers an approved program of preparation aligned with Ohio Educator Licensure Program Standards for the TTW Endorsement. A Transition-to-Work Endorsement can be added to the following standard Ohio licenses or certificates:
- intervention specialist
- career-technical teaching
- professional pupil services
The TTW Endorsement is a highly valuable credential, required by many school districts for their transition specialists, job training coordinators, career assessment specialists, and others who coordinate or provide transition services. For school counselors, occupational therapists, social workers, school psychologists, and other pupil service professionals, earning the TTW Endorsement certifies that they have the knowledge and skills to support effective transitions for the students with disabilities they serve.
