Graduate Reading Endorsement

Eastern Oregon University’s Graduate Literacy program is designed to support those seeking the Reading Intervention endorsement.  Candidates may add this endorsement to a license by completing the reading program coursework, including 90 hours of practicum, and obtaining a passing score on a state-approved content exam.

Adding a Reading Endorsement

The Graduate Literacy program is a completely online program that can be completed on its own or as part of a Master of Science degree.  There are two options for candidates interested in graduate literacy: a 24-credit course of study leading to a Reading Intervention Endorsement or a 15-credit Literacy Focus Area to fulfill requirements for the MS focus area.

The graduate reading program coordinator will only consider one graduate-level transfer course, equivalent to 3 quarter credit hours, towards completion of the graduate reading intervention program. The practicum must be completed at EOU. All coursework must be completed within 6 years of requesting recommendation for licensure. If changes occur according to TSPC or legislative decisions, candidates will be required to meet all of the new requirements in order to quality for a licensing recommendation.
