Low Incidence Disabilities

Putting Your Coursework to Work

Graduate students who complete the master's degree in low incidence disabilities will have achieved both a master's degree as well as satisfied the requirements add the low incidence disabilities licensure endorsement to their current teaching license. It's a two-for-one graduate program for aspiring special education educators and service providers. The master's degree is an important goal for many teachers and increases teacher pay.

All students completing initial licensure programs or adding endorsements 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 process. Questions on licensure or licensure endorsement should be directed to Alisa Branham, KU School of Education Licensure Officer at abranham@ku.edu.
