Steps to getting a LM endorsement added to your MT teaching license


Once you have finished the courses necessary for a Library Media endorsement,

1. Order official transcripts from both the University of Montana-Missoula and the University of Montana Western. If any course work was transferred into the program from another university besides UMM and UMW, official transcripts will be needed. Send all transcripts to the lead school Licensure Specialist.
