Graduate Instructional Licensure Programs

Graduate level licensure programs are comprised of instructional and administrative programs. Graduate level applicants are required to request and receive a Transcript Evaluation and Credential Review (TECR) from the Office of Teacher Education and Licensure (OTEL) prior to admission to the graduate program. The TECR is the formal advisement relative to Indiana licensure and Purdue University licensure program obligations and is intentionally delivered in advance of program admission and enrollment to ensure transparency.

All graduate level coursework for an instructional license must be a “C-” or higher (those enrolled in the High Ability licensure program must complete coursework with a B- or above), no “I” (Incomplete) grade, and no “Pass/Fail” outside of Spring 2020 COVID exceptions or specific program requirements. Once you begin your licensure program of interest, the OTEL Licensing Advisors/Officers will continuously monitor your progress each semester, along with your program faculty, to assist in your continuous success.
