Rethinking Equity and Teaching for English Language Learners (RETELL)

An Alternative to the Department's No-Cost SEI Endorsement Course Offerings -
For-Cost Courses

SEI Endorsement courses are available at a cost through approved providers to individuals and to districts.

Individuals who need or want to earn the SEI endorsement may pay to enroll in SEI Endorsement courses through one of the approved providers listed below. These for-cost courses cover the exact same curriculum as the Department's no-cost courses, are taught by instructors who have been vetted and trained by the Department, and are an approved pathway to SEI Endorsement for:

  • Any educator seeking SEI Endorsement after 2016
  • Non-core educators (art, music, world language, P.E., etc.)
  • Individuals who failed their Endorsement course the first time around
  • Educators who, for personal reasons, did not avail themselves of no-cost courses when they were available
  • Parochial and private school educators

Districts may also book sections of for-cost courses through one of the approved providers listed below, as long as the provider allows this type of booking.

Approved Providers of For-Cost SEI Endorsement courses

The following organizations are currently approved by the Department to provide SEI Endorsement training and to issue SEI Endorsements to individuals who successfully complete those courses. This list is updated periodically as additional providers are approved.

Some colleges, universities, and other sponsoring organizations have been approved to provide the SEI Endorsement course stand-alone. That means that a participant in the course will be awarded the SEI Endorsement even if they are not enrolled in a pre-service licensure program through the organization offering the course. Each organization has its own fee structure, enrollment rules and procedures, and course format. All courses must meet the minimum requirements for face-to-face instruction, practicum time, and instruction in the required content. Please contact the organization for more information.
