Information About Licensure

Admission to Licensure Programs
Applicants to licensure and teaching minor programs must complete the graduate degree and licensure application. Applicants to teaching endorsement programs may apply for admission as special students. Students who are presently in a graduate degree progr am (M.S., Ed.S., Ed.D., or Ph.D.), or who are applying for admission to one, are not required to apply separately for admission to a licensure, endorsement, or minor program. See the chapter entitled “Admission to Graduate Programs” for application procedures and admission criteria.

Standard and Professional Licenses
The licensure requirements presented in this chapter are for standard licenses. All standard licenses may be upgraded to professional licenses. The initial standard license is valid for five years. The initial professional license is valid f or 10 years. Teachers can professionalize their standard license by completing an appropriate master’s degree, with specific course work in each field to be included on the professional license, and five years of teaching. School psychologists can profess ionalize their license with five years of experience. School counselors can professionalize their license by completing 18 credit hours in six topical areas and five years of professional experience. School administrators can professionalize their license with five years of experience in the specified licensure area in an accredited school and 60 graduate credit hours.

License Renewal
Standard licenses must be renewed every five years. Professional licenses issued since 1990 must also be renewed every five years, after the initial ten year period. Both standard and professional licenses are renewed by taking 6 credit hours of course wo rk in the major or minor field or in professional education course work. Licenses may also be renewed through the Indiana Professional Standards Board by earning a specified number of continuing renewal units (CRU’s).

Applying for License
Upon completion of the requirements for licensure, the student must fill out an application form available in the Education Student Services Office at Education Building 1000, Bloomington, IN 47405-1006 (812-856-8511), or at Education/Social Work Building 3131, Indianapolis, IN 46202-5155 (317-274-0645).

Teaching Licenses (Graduate Level)

Teachers who have earned a teaching license in their undergraduate program may extend the license to other grade levels or add an endorsement for a specialized area of teaching by taking graduate course work. Students who have a baccalaureate degree in a field outside of education may earn an initial teaching license through a graduate nondegree licensure program. Initial teaching licenses and endorsements may also be attained by completing specified undergraduate course work. The advantage of taking grad uate course work for licensure or endorsement is that these courses may also be used in a graduate degree program. The advantage of using undergraduate course work for these purposes is that the tuition rate for undergraduate courses is lower.

Complete requirements for undergraduate-level teaching licensure programs are listed in the School of Education Undergraduate Bulletin. Complete requirements for graduate-level teaching licensure programs are available from the Certification Office, Educa tion 1000, Bloomington, IN 47405-1006 (812-856-8511), or Education/Social Work 3131, Indianapolis, IN 46202-5155 (317-274-0645). Students interested in earning a teaching license must have their transcripts evaluated by a license advisor.

Before receiving the initial teaching license, applicants must pass the required basic skills test as well as particular subtest(s) for their area(s) of specialization. This requirement may be waived if a student has had three years of relevant teaching e xperience in another state while holding a valid teaching license in that state.

Admission to Teacher Education Program
Graduate students who are seeking first-time teacher licensure must apply for admission to the Teacher Education Program in addition to applying for admission to the School of Education. The licensure requirements for graduate students vary, depending on their undergraduate course work. An application form for admission to the Teacher Education Program is available in the Education Student Services Office at Education 1000, Bloomington, IN 47405-1006 (812-856-8500), or Education/Social Work 3131, Indianap olis, IN 46202-5155 (317-274-0645).
