Indiana License Types and Coverage

Students beginning their teacher education programs effective on or after July 1, 2002, are admitted under newly adopted rules established by the Indiana Professional Standards Board (the agency that governs teacher education in the state of Indiana). These rules are referred to as Rules 2002. Each license issued under Rules 2002 will include school setting(s) or levels that a person may teach and the content field(s) or subjects that the individual may teach. Each license must include at least one school setting and one content field. The B or I after an entry indicates the campus where the program is offered. As a general rule, students working toward licensure must earn at least half of their credits at Bloomington or Indianapolis.

Certification Students Applying for a Master's Degree

Students in certification programs, who wish to seek a master's degree, must go through the standard process for admission to graduate study. Furthermore, in order to be accepted into any of the School of Education's specialization areas in which a master's degree may be earned, students must be admitted to a master's degree program in one of these specialization areas in the semester prior to the semester in which they intend to graduate and they must be officially registered in the semester in which they graduate.

Credit hours earned by a certification student who has been admitted to a master's degree program may or may not be counted in the student's master's program. The department chair or program head and the associate dean of graduate studies must approve the inclusion of courses taken while the student was earning credits toward certification but was not admitted to a master's degree program. Furthermore, a certification student, who has been admitted to a master's degree program, may use a maximum of 15 credits taken while the student was working on certification but was not admitted to the master's degree program.

Admission to License Programs

Applicants to licensure programs must complete the graduate degree and licensure application.

See the section titled Admission to Graduate Programs for application procedures and criteria.

Return to Teaching Licenses (B-I)

Standard and Professional Licenses

(This section valid through June 30, 2004)

The licensure requirements described in this paragraph pertain to individuals who either already hold a valid Indiana license or who will complete a program of studies prior to June 30, 2006. For these individuals, the initial license is called a Standard License that is valid for a five year period for those licensed prior to July 1, 2003. Teachers may be upgraded to a Professional License that is valid for 10 years by completing an appropriate master's degree, specific course work in each field to be included on the license, and completion of five years teaching experience in an accredited P-12 school. School Psychologists are eligible to professionalize their license with five years of experience. School Counselors may professionalize their license by completing an additional 18 hours of graduate course work distributed across six topical areas and completion of five years experience in P-12 schools. Educational Leaders may professionalize their licenses after five years of administrative experience in P-12 accredited school settings and by earning either an Ed.S. or higher degree or completing at least 60 graduate hours of credit.

Existing standard licenses must be renewed each five years. A professional license, after the initial 10-year period, is renewable for five years. Both standard and professional licenses are renewed by taking 6 credit hours of course work in the major or minor field or in professional education. Additionally, individuals are granted as much flexibility as possible in designing their own individualized program of professional development that results in the awarding of academic credit.

Return to Teaching Licenses (B-I)

Initial, Proficient Practitioner, and Accomplished Practitioner Licenses

These licenses will become available for candidates completing newly designed standards-based, performance-focused programs beginning July 1, 2003. There will be a gradual phase-in of new license rules during the coming four years. All licenses issued as of July 1, 2006 must be issued using the new license rules. Some programs will initiate these programs effective with newly admitted students in fall 2002. Please check with your program area or your advisor for more details.

To be licensed as a school psychologist through IU, the student must earn either an Ed.S. or Ph.D. degree with a major in school psychology and be recommended by the director of the School Psychology Training Program to the School of Education certification officer.
