Florida Students with Disabilities Requirement

Educators who wish to renew their Florida Educator Certification must complete six (6) semester hours of college credit to include at least one (1) semester hour in teaching students with disabilities (SWD) during each renewal period. 

The classes listed below are considered SWD coursework and can be taken for graduate credit through many of TEI's partners. TEI offers both three-credit and one-credit courses, with one-credit courses being offered solely by Madonna University.

An official transcript is required as part of the renewal documents and these can be ordered directly from the credit granting institution upon completion of the class.
