This program is available to individuals who possess a New Jersey standard instructional certificate or a Certificate of Eligibility with Advanced Standing. The program is not aligned to any specific degree program, does not lead to a degree of any kind, and is usually completed exclusively through the Graduate School of Education Office of Continuing Education's off-campus sites.

If students are interested in taking an endorsement course offered on the New Brunswick campus, they must obtain special permission from the instructor.

The program requires 21 credits of Rutgers University graduate course work but does not lead to a graduate degree. If the student later decides to apply to the Ed.M. program in Special Education he or she must formally apply to the master's program.

Only 6 credits (two courses) taken in the endorsement program can be applied to the master's graduate degree program: Psychology of Exceptional Children (3) and Learning Disabilities (3).
