The Graduate Certificate in Special Education provides out-of-field teachers and students with some of the course work needed to meet state certification requirements in special education.

The Special Education certificate will help out-of-field teachers become more effective in their classrooms and will enhance the delivery of education to children and youth with disabilities.

Please note: This program may be completed online, although not all elective options or program prerequisites may be offered online. Newly admitted students choosing to complete this program exclusively via UCF online classes may enroll with a reduction in campus-based fees.
