Teacher Certification & Licensing

Graduates of accredited universities and colleges who wish to enter Purdue University to complete requirements for standard teacher certification should contact the Office of Professional Preparation and Licensure for the appropriate procedures. Graduates who wish to complete advanced certification requirements may do so on the same basis as other graduate students. Such applicants must meet the general admission requirements of the department and the Graduate School, as well as obtain permission to enter the specific certification program in which they are interested. Special Transition to Teaching programs are available to competent professionals in fields other than teaching who wish to transition into the teaching profession.
