Low Incidence Disabilities

Initial Licensure & Licensure Endorsement

NOTE: Completing the endorsement course work as noted here will satisfy the coursework needed to add the low incidence endorsement to your current teaching license. Most teachers will take a few additional graduate courses to finish the Master's degree as well. The Master's degree is an important goal for many teachers and increases teacher pay.

New Online Application Process for Kansas Licensure

All students completing initial licensure programs or adding endorsements (like Low-Incidence Disabilities) to their current Kansas license must file the Form 1 application online with KSDE. Please see the School of Education's licensure section for detailed instructions for this new process. Questions on licensure or licensure endorsement should be directed to Alisa Branham, KU School of Education Licensure Officer at abranham@ku.edu.
