Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Graduate Certificate in Coaching is designed to prepare coaches in youth, school and recreational programs. These courses will provide teachers with two of the three required courses for the coaching endorsement, a requirement in the state of Florida to coach in public school. The additional requirement to gain the coaching endorsement can be obtained by taking an undergraduate course or completing a county workshop on coaching specialization. Students completing this program can be hired in school districts, youth sports programs and other recreational agencies needing trained and certified coaches.

International Student Requirements:

In order to enroll in graduate classes, students must have obtained a baccalaureate or higher degree, prior to the start of the term for which the student is admitted, from a regionally accredited institution or from a recognized foreign institution. International students are not eligible for nondegree/certificate status unless they hold an eligible visa. International applicants are encouraged to begin the application process early. Also, international applicants should ensure all supporting documents, including those required to issue an I-20, are received by the stated application deadline. Only official documentation is accepted and it is the student's responsibility to submit all documents by the application deadline.
