Whether you have completed an undergraduate or graduate education degree, receiving the ECE Generalist Endorsement certifies your ability to teach all core academic subjects in grades 4 and 5. In the process, our convenient, flexible online format, with courses held throughout the year, helps you increase your marketability as a teacher.
Our online program is fully accredited by The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and Higher Learning Commission and is approved by the Ohio Department of Higher Education.

The ECE Generalist Endorsement can be earned with a candidate’s initial PreK–3 Ohio Teaching License or post-licensure. Individuals may complete the ECE Generalist Endorsement coursework at MVNU if they are:
- Finishing up an undergraduate degree and teacher’s preparation program and plan to apply for their initial license.
- Have completed a bachelor’s or master’s degree, finished a teacher’s preparation program, and hold a PreK–3 Ohio Teaching License.
Note that individuals can only apply for the ECE Generalist Endorsement after they have finished a teacher’s preparation program and received their PreK–3 Ohio Teaching License.
