Professional Licensure by State

Professional Licensure by State

General Disclosure Statement on 34 CFR 668.43(a)(5)(v). It may be assumed that many academic programs at ESU automatically lead to professional licensure in the other states. The disclosures listed below, as of July 2020, regarding ESU academic programs, clarify the status of 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 educationprior to beginning your program. 

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.

Links to each individual state's/territory's department of education is included in the listings below.
