Literacy Addition Track
This Literacy Addition Track is only for those candidates who have completed one of the programs in SUNY Cortland's literacy master's degree who desire to obtain the other program.

Upon completion of either of these programs, candidates must apply for the additional certification on their own through the New York State Education Department (NYSED). Candidates must apply and be admitted to the Literacy Addition Track (Birth-6 or Grades 5-12).
