The post baccalaureate educator preparation programs and the bachelor’s degree educator preparation pathway are designed to meet the coursework requirements for a certified educator in the State of Arizona.

For students seeking initial certification or licensure in a state other than Arizona, you may need to fulfill additional coursework requirements such as a state constitution course which may include or additional student teaching, prior to applying for your certification or licensure. In addition, you may need to meet additional requirements such as passing additional licensure or certification exams.

Students should also be aware that Arizona participates in the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) Interstate Agreement. Although there may be conditions applicable in other states, such as additional licensure or certification exams, this Agreement makes it possible for an educator who holds a certificate or license in Arizona to earn a certificate or license in another state by means of reciprocity.

Please contact the licensure or certification Boards from your state for more information.
