Endorsement and Equivalencies Forms

Licensure in North Dakota is based upon transcripted majors and minors from approved colleges of teacher education. Once an individual has obtained a valid North Dakota Professional Educator’s License on that basis, the licensee may add endorsements to their license. The Education Standards and Practices Board issues two types of endorsements, those that extend the grade levels in which the licensee may practice (kindergarten, elementary, middle school, secondary) and those that add additional content area qualifications (Minor Equivalency Endorsements).

Other types of credentials related to school accreditation (administration, counseling, special education, driver education, and library media) are issued separately by the ND Department of Public Instruction and do not appear on the license.
