About This Program

The Reading Endorsement Preparation non-degree program prepares students to obtain the Ohio K-12 Reading endorsement. Completion of the coursework is a prerequisite to being recommended by Kent State University for this endorsement; and endorsements are granted by the Ohio Department of Education.

The non-degree program is not a master's degree program. Students interested in obtaining a teaching endorsement and a master's degree from Kent State University must also be fully admitted into the master's degree program and complete the prescribed coursework on the master's degree prospectus, in addition to courses that are prescribed here for an endorsement.
