Online Science Endorsement

USOE offers several online endorsement courses in partnership with the UEN and Southern Utah University (SUU).

These courses are designed with two things in mind:

  • content
  • and improving science instructional strategies

The courses are offered in a semester setting and require 4-6 hours a week of coursework. Due to the time commitment, teachers are only allowed to sign up for two classes per semester.

Utah Science Teachers Association (USTA)
USTA partners with local colleges and universities to connect teachers from across the state with the courses they need for endorsements. 

For all courses counting toward endorsement credit, you must select to have the course documented on a transcript and pay any associated documentation fees. You can then submit that transcript with your secondary science endorsement application. If it is not documented on a transcript, you will not be able to use the course to meet an endorsement requirement.
