LICENSURE PROGRAM ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

In compliance with federal and state regulations, the Purdue University (West Lafayette) College of Education publicly discloses its undergraduate and graduate level Teacher Education programs each of which integrate required clinical experiences and conclude with an Indiana Educators License. One set of programs, Online Special Education, provides two options: Option A: Non-licensure and Option B: Licensure.

Option A may or may not require clinical experiences and will not lead to an instructional license within or outside Indiana. Upon successful completion of Option B, the State of Indiana will grant to a program completer an 1.) Indiana Initial Instructional license in Exceptional Needs.

Purdue University Teacher Education program completers, who seek licensure in a state other than Indiana, can expect that state to assign further licensure requirements, conduct a transcript and credential review, verify program completion, and/or require additional testing. For Purdue Teacher Education program completers who hold an Indiana license, the State of Indiana has two-way, Interstate Reciprocity Agreements with the District of Columbia and each state and US territory. Each agreement is unique and subject to change.

For details on reciprocity agreements and contact information for individual state departments of education visit the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) or email a Purdue University licensing officer/advisor at licensure@purdue.edu.

The Purdue University Teacher Education Program is nationally accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and the State of Indiana.
