This certificate cannot be added to an existing teacher or administrative license as the certificate is given by Ashland University, not the Ohio Department of Education. Candidates enrolled in a "stand-alone" certificate program cannot receive federal (Title IV) financial aid for the courses. If the certificate is embedded in the TL-21 program, the certificate will be awarded from Ashland University only after the candidate has successfully completed all requirements for the degree, including the embedded certificate, and has graduated from the M.Ed. program. Please talk with the financial aid office regarding any questions about certificates and potential financial aid.

Where can you take courses for this program?

All courses for this program are taught online via Ashland University's ANGEL Learning Management System. Online classes have no face-to-face meetings, but may meet for synchronous classes sessions throughout a given semester or term.
