Adding Endorsements

Note: All forms mentioned here can be found in the Licensure Forms tab. To be considered official, transcripts must be sent directly to the licensure coordinator from the institution (electronically or via mail). The institution can also mail the transcripts or the employee may provide transcripts to HR in the original sealed envelope. Photocopies and transcripts sent electronically to the employee are also not official.

You can add most endorsements to your current license by passing the corresponding Praxis Exam, paying the appropriate fee, and completing an NNPS Licensure Request Form. The HR Licensure Coordinator needs to receive all required documents.

  • Early/primary education PreK-3
