Professional Licensure by State

Professional Licensure by State

General Disclosure Statement on 34 CFR 668.43(a)(5)(v). For academic programs that may reasonably be assumed to lead to professional licensure, these disclosures indicate, as of July 2020, the states where the university has determined through reasonable, good faith effort that such programs:

  • Do meet the applicable professional licensure education requirements;
  • Do not meet the applicable professional licensure education requirements; or
  • Have not been able to be identified as meeting the applicable professional licensure education requirements.

Each state has its own licensure requirements, so it is best to contact the relevant state department of education prior to beginning your program.  For a list of US states and territories departments of education's certification requirements, visit this link.

Note: The nonprofit organization Education Commission of the States has compiled Teacher License Reciprocity State Profiles that provide additional information about the teacher license reciprocity agreements for each state in a searchable format. Kansas Teacher Reciprocity Agreements provides a list of member states of the NASDTEC Interstate Agreement who have signed reciprocity agreements with Kansas.
