Licensed teachers may add endorsements in two ways: 1) By completing an approved program of coursework and passing the appropriate ETS subject exam; or 2) In certain cases, by simply passing a subject exam.

Adding Endorsements By Exam Only
In June 2012, KSDE voted to continue allowing licensed teachers to add many licensure endorsements by simply passing the subject exam. For example, a Physics teacher might be able to pass the Math exam, so he/she could teach both Physics and Math. Please note that this option applies to all content areas except for Elementary, Unified Early Childhood, Special Education, or Administration. Adding endorsements can make teachers more marketable, therefore you might consider doing this! Contact the Licensure Officer at KU if you have specific questions.
