School Library Media Administration Minor
This program is available as an undergraduate minor or graduate endorsement. Students will do all the required course work and practicum experiences to apply for the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) library media K-12 endorsement. To seek the endorsement, students must have or be working toward a Utah teaching license.
To apply to this program, you must be admitted to USU. Start with the undergraduate online application process or the graduate online application process.
Only the Endorsement
If you have a degree and only want the USBE endorsement, apply to USU as an undergraduate. On the application, choose the certificate/endorsement as your reason for applying. Your application fee will be waived.
Once you are a USU student, you'll work with your program advisor to complete the appropriate course work. For more information, see the SLMA page.
ITLS Graduate Program Application Fee Waiver
*Application fee waivers are for ITLS graduate program students only*
Application fee waivers are available only to students applying to an ITLS graduate degree program who demonstrate financial need, are first-generation students, identify as a member of a racial, ethnic, LGBTQ+, or other community or group historically underrepresented in our field, or have served or are serving as members of the U.S. military. Our overall goal as a department is to ensure the application fee is not a barrier of entry to our programs, so please reach out if it is. Fee waivers are confidential and are not disclosed to admissions committees.
Please contact our graduate coordinator Janet Blad before you submit an application, if you would like to be considered for a fee waiver. We are unable to refund any applications fees paid.
Again, please note this does not apply for applications to graduate programs outside of the ITLS department.
