Added Endorsement in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education (K-12)

Educators seeking to add a second or subsequent endorsement area to their Colorado licenses may do so through the completion of a state-approved program offered by an institution of higher education. The college or university provides advisement concerning specific requirements for the new endorsement. The MSU Denver School of Education offers three approved programs for added endorsement:

Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education (K-12) Added Endorsement
Special Education Generalist (K-12) Added Endorsement
Spanish/English Bilingual Education Specialist Added Endorsement

The course sequence required for these endorsements was developed by MSU Denver’s School of Education and approved by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE). Upon meeting the requirements and completing these approved programs, MSU Denver will provide an institutional recommendation which will be included in your added endorsement application to CDE.  The Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CLD) Education Endorsement is an additional credential that all licensed educators in the state of Colorado can add to their teaching license.  The CLD Endorsement provides educators the skills and knowledge to support second language learners in both their English language development and their overall academic achievement.
