IMPORTANT! On the Academic tab of your Profile, you will want to select the appropriate choices from the list of Professional Educators Licensure (PEL).
There is a list on the Majors list just for PELs.
All endorsements are listed alphabetically on the Majors list. They are not listed by college.
Your major/endorsement area(s) will correspond closely in name with the endorsement areas established by ISBE.
Sometimes you will be selecting more than one category from the Professional Educator Licensure (PEL) list. This is because in some cases (such as Elementary Education), you will have both a grade level endorsement and a subject/content area endorsement. Example: Elementary Education, Language Arts, Social Science, Science
Be sure to select ALL categories that match your PEL endorsements. Some majors/endorsement areas are followed by (G) only. This indicates that this is an area that is only a graduate (master’s degree or beyond) program.
