Cedarville's Graduate Reading Endorsement program is designed for part-time completion in about a year and includes four online courses and three field experiences — one each in early childhood (K–3), middle childhood (4–8) and high school (9–12).

Following is an example of a part-time course schedule based on a fall term start. Actual course schedules may vary and should be confirmed with the Office of the Registrar before the start of each term.
