License Renewal or Career Change?
Are you looking for courses to renew your teaching license and/or considering a new career path? We can certainly help you with both options. Currently, educators who were licensed prior to 2004 can opt to renew their license by completing 6 credits every five years. Educators who were licensed after 2004 can also take credits as part of their PDP plan and use that to renew your license. You can do these credits for renewal only, or combine them with other courses to complete a certificate or a graduate degree that may open new options in your career.
Rob Longwell-Grice, Coordinator of Recruitment and Scholarship Services for the School of Education, can assist you regardless of your goal. He can help you find courses that will work for your renewal, and talk with you about the different programs and degrees the School of Education offers. If you have questions about any of our programs – be they graduate or undergraduate, degrees or certificates; new or renewal licenses – please contact Rob at firstname.lastname@example.org or (414) 229-3059.
