Any student completing a teaching licensing program must achieve a grade point average in his teaching major and/or minor(s) not less than that required as an overall grade point average for teacher certification of 2.75.
Students must complete all graduation and licensure requirements before being recommended for any teaching license. Students completing their teaching curricula at the end of the first semester of any given school year will normally file applications for standard licenses in Indiana after January 15 of the following year. All other students normally will file their applications after June 1 of the school year in which their work is being completed.
Applications for licensure--new licenses, renewals, and additions of Rules 46-47 licenses—are submitted online at https://license.doe.in.gov/
Licenses may be renewed either by completing six hours of coursework (in education or any content area on the license) or by completing a professional growth plan (for information about a professional growth plan, see http://www.doe.in.gov/educatorlicensing/growth.html
Applicants for the initial standard teaching license must pass specialty area examinations (Praxis II) in their major (primary) and minor teaching fields, and any additional exam as required by the Indiana Department of Education. For information about the required exams, see http://www.ets.org/praxis/in/requirements
Each state may have specific additional requirements for teacher licensure. Students who desire to obtain a teaching license in a particular state should contact the appropriate agency in that state to determine the necessary requirements.
