Once the evaluation for the endorsement is completed, you'll receive instructions on how to apply for the endorsement with the Illinois State Board of Education.
You must apply for the subsequent endorsements as soon as you are notified that Illinois State University has made the subsequent endorsement recommendation. A delay in application may cause the notification to become invalid due to changes in Illinois State Department of Education requirements.
If anything is missing from your application, we'll send you a deficiency letter explaining what you need to complete for us to make the recommendation for the subsequent endorsement. You'll submit a new request form with evidence that you met the identified deficiencies to the appropriate office. If you submit within one year of the date on the initial deficiency letter, you will not have to pay a new evaluation fee.
