The first step is for the educator to submit the application and fee for an evaluation of the courses on their official transcripts. When the application is processed, the educator will receive a statement of status of eligibility letter that lists any missing requirements. The statement of status of eligibility letter will remain valid for 3 years from the date that it is processed, which will allow the educator plenty of time to complete any missing requirements without being required to reapply or pay the fee again.

Please see the instructions below for steps on how to order an official transcript to be sent for review after you complete all of your classes for the endorsement you are looking to add. You may either:

Have the transcript sent directly to the FLDOE

Recommended: Have the official transcripts sent to yourself. Do not open the envelope (it needs to remain official). Write your FLDOE number on the front of the envelope, and send in another envelope certified (for tracking purposes) to the FLDOE

Please refer to the following registrar website:

Official Transcripts:

  • Order official Broward College transcripts or check the status of a previous order through ⦁ Credentials Solutions, Inc.
  • Current students may also order transcripts through their myBC portal.

Each official transcript incurs a $5.00 fee. All financial obligations must be paid in full prior to official transcripts being released. You may contact Credentials at 847-716-3005 with questions about transcript orders.

Please Note: The Office of the Registrar is currently working remotely due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19. At this time, ‘transcript pick-up’ is currently unavailable. Please reference 'Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates' for the status of the reopening of the college.

Educators are able to complete these endorsement courses at any time, and the endorsement can be added to a Temporary Certificate as long as the educator has a valid (unexpired) Temporary Certificate and has submitted an application (along with payment).

No, there’s no expiration date for courses, although an educator’s application is valid for one year. When the applicant receives a statement of status of eligibility (SOE), these statements are valid for three years. If the applicant does not meet the requirements and submit them to the FLDOE within this timeframe, they will need to compete another application and pay the processing fee.

The recommendation would be to apply for the endorsement and wait for the SOE to be issued. Please keep in mind that the application fee is specifically for reviewing and processing applications, so the FLDOE does not provide course approvals for applicants who do not have an open application.

To add a subject or endorsement to any certificate, an application is required.
