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.
Admission to the Educational Technology, and Mathematics Education (K-8) Graduate Certificates requires degree.
- Application for admission and $60 non-refundable
- Copy of a current Alaska teaching certificate
- Official transcript(s) are also required for courses transferred in from another institution

The Mathematics Education (K-8) Certificate is a culturally responsive program designed to provide K-8 teachers with a deeper understanding of mathematical content and pedagogy. The courses will emphasize nontraditional, hands-on methods and approaches providing both rigor and pedagogy. Topics addressed include: problem solving; numeration and operations; algebra and functions; geometry and measurement; data analysis; statistics and probability; and calculus and trigonometry. ED S608 and ED S614 are offered on Juneau campus during summer session. Remaining courses in the program may be offered by distance. It is expected that those enrolled in the program will complete it in 18–24 months.
