School Library Media Endorsement

The School Library Media professional endorsement is designed for individuals with a valid Virginia Collegiate Professional License or equivalent from another state who want to be eligible to add an endorsement for Library Media PreK-12 without obtaining a Master's degree.

The endorsement introduces methods of information management and ideas to develop fully collaborative library media programs in today's schools. Successful completion meets current eligibility requirements for an endorsement as a school library media specialist in grades PreK-12.



Newly admitted students are assigned the appropriate advisor. The assignment of the advisor generally is not changed unless the student changes his/her degree program. Prior to registration, students are encouraged to consult with their academic advisor regarding course selection and sequence, career goals, and relevant academic policies. Although the academic advisor assists students with curriculum decisions and options, the student bears full responsibility for meeting graduation requirements.
