Undergraduate Level Licensure Programs

Admission to the Teacher Education Program (TEP) is a distinct and unique admission process, separate from admission to Purdue University and a specific college with a teacher education program. Each teacher education program includes the Plan of Study for the degree. Click on the program area links listed to the right of this page for more information about the degree Plan of Study.

Graduate Level Licensure Programs

Graduate level licensure programs are comprised of instructional, administrative, and school services programs.  All applicants to graduate level licensure programs are required to request the completion of a transcript evaluation prior to admission.  The Transcript Evaluation Request Form link is located on the right side of this page.  Only individuals completing instructional programs as degree-seeking, “post-baccalaureate for licensing only” candidates are required to obtain admission to the Teacher Education Program (TEP) -- a distinct and unique admission process, separate from graduate admission to Purdue University.  For more information about the TEP admission and retention process, please contact the academic/faculty advisor for the specific teacher education program.  All licensure programs are listed below.
