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 undergraduate teacher education program includes the Plan of Study for the degree.

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.
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.
