Program Overview

DLI Grad flyer The certificate in Dual Language Immersion (DLI) administration provides school leaders and district administrators with the knowledge and skills necessary to implement successful DLI programs in schools. The overall objective of the program is to provide DLI professional development for individuals that are implementing, maintaining, and assessing DLI programs in schools and districts. Specifically, candidates who successfully complete the certificate will have a broad-based knowledge of how to educate an increasingly linguistically diverse student population.

The certificate is a standalone program; however, degree-seeking students admitted to the EdS program may complete the courses as a concentration.

Admission requirements are as follows:
  • Complete the Graduate School Certificate Application. If the applicant intends to complete an Educational Specialist degree with DLI concentration then complete both the Certificate Application and the Educational Specialist degree application found under the doctoral application tab.
  • Have a master's degree from an accredited academic institution.
  • Have three years of successful school leadership experience.
  • Be a graduate student or education professional working in his or her respective fields.

Note: Preference will be given to candidates with licensure in administration or supervision.

  Applicants seeking admission must be graduate students or education professionals working in their respective fields. Applicants should have a master's degree and demonstrate three years of successful school leadership experience. Candidates with licensure in administration or supervision licensure are preferred. Professionals can enroll as nondegree seeking students. Admission is based on completion of the ECU certificate application and approval by the program coordinator.
