Post Baccalaureate Licensure

Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Licensure

Licensure is also available to those who already hold a baccalaureate degree (or higher) from an accredited college or university in the United States and wish to enter the field of teaching. To be recommended for a Professional Educator License, candidates must meet all entrance requirements and fulfill the same sequence of courses that candidates seeking the Elementary Major or the Secondary Minor are required to complete.  Post-Baccalaureate candidates seeking secondary licensure will be required to complete at least two upper-division content courses at UIS which will be determined by a TEP advisor. Assuming that all prerequisites and introductory courses are met, candidates can expect to spend a minimum of four semesters completing licensure requirements.
