At the conclusion of the full 10 semesters, candidates who successfully complete all required coursework and pass the required state licensure exams are eligible for the endorsement for certification as a building principal and district superintendent. Candidates for the Bridge to Principal Certification program must have their transcripts evaluated by faculty within the School of Education to determine eligibility for this program.

 

Note: Candidates who complete the three (3) semester Principal Bridge program but do not complete the EdD in Educational Leadership are not eligible for endorsement as a building principal.
