Education Graduate certificates provide candidates with eligibility endorsements to an Alaska teaching certificate. All course work must be completed within a seven-year period immediately preceding the date the graduate certificate is granted. Graduate certificates are granted by the University of Alaska Southeast; UAS provides the institutional recommendation to the student to submit to the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development for endorsement.
