The Building Level Licensure program requires six graduate core educational leadership courses offered over three semesters, with a one-credit internship each semester (total 3 credits). A total of 21 credits post-master’s degree is required for the license. The license is specific to Indiana, so candidates from other states should consult with their own state licensing boards to determine whether Indiana coursework and/or licensure are accepted.
Application deadline: This program has rolling admissions for fall, spring and summer semesters. Applications are accepted at any time, but admission might be delayed to the next semester if submitted less than two weeks prior to the upcoming semester.
The U.S. Department of Education requires institutions to publicly disclose to prospective and currently enrolled students whether certain programs meet the education requirements for licensure or certification in the state or territory in which they reside. “Programs Leading to Professional Licensure” is defined as programs represented to prepare students for an occupation for which, at completion of the program, a local, state or federal license, or nongovernmental certification is required (i) as a precondition for employment, (ii) to perform certain functions, or (iii) to meet additional conditions that are generally needed to secure employment.
The Purdue University Teacher Education Program is nationally accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and the State of Indiana. However, not all undergraduate and graduate programs lead to an educator licensure in the State of Indiana. If your Teacher Education program includes field experience(s) and a student teaching or internship component, it may lead to an educator license in the State of Indiana, if you meet the licensure requirements. Contact your academic/faculty advisor and/or the Office of Teacher and Licensure at email@example.com to verify your program enrollment and whether or not it leads to a license in the State of Indiana.
The State of Indiana has reciprocity agreements with other states, the District of Columbia, and territories. For licensing information contact information for individual state departments of education or visit the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) or email a Purdue University licensing officer/advisor at firstname.lastname@example.org.

One of the reasons I choose Purdue to pursue the Administrator's Licensing program is for their reputation. Purdue University is seen as a prestigious school. The professors not only have the knowledge of the content being taught, but they also have the work experience. ALL of the Professors in this program have extensive background as a teacher and an administrator's so they know first hand what is required.
Purdue's Administrator's Licensing program is designed for the working Professional, by meeting once or twice per 8 weeks with the remainder online. The hybrid method allows students to meet with Professors in person while also working on your own.
The Professors at Purdue are always willing to offer assistance anytime of the day. I've truly enjoyed the program.
