What is an endorsement?


An endorsement is a set of courses that allows a student to dig into an area of interest to them. Similar to a college major, each endorsement allows the student to learn more about a particular subject area. The options are Arts and Humanities; Business and Industry; Multidisciplinary Studies; Public Service; and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).

When a student chooses an endorsement, they will be required to complete a certain number of courses. Often, these courses will be counted as electives for the purpose of the student’s graduation requirements. A student’s counselor or adviser will be most helpful in determining what courses a student will need to take in order to fulfill this requirement. Finally, if a student’s interests change, they can always notify their counselor and select a new endorsement.
