How to Earn a Teacher’s License While Enrolled in Other Schools of the University
For students not in the School of Education, teacher certification and degree conferral are two separate processes. In the senior high/junior high/middle school and all-grade programs students may earn certification through the School of Education while enrolled and earning a baccalaureate degree in any of the following schools of the university:

Bloomington IUPUI
College of Arts and Sciences School of Physical Education
School of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation Herron School of Art
School of Journalism School of Liberal Arts*
School of Music School of Science
University Graduate School

Such candidates must meet both the degree-granting school’s graduation requirements and the certification requirements for the School of Education. That is to say, students earning certification must meet the general-education, professional education, and subject matter course requirements in the area in which they wish to be certified, as outlined in this bulletin; they must also have completed a minimum of 124 credit hours (see specific degree requirements). In addition, these students must satisfy all the requirements for the degree, as stipulated by the degree-granting school. It is strongly recommended that students in this program see an academic advisor in each of the schools every semester before registering.

Note: All undergraduate students majoring in elementary education, early childhood education, and special education must be enrolled in the School of Education. These students will receive both the degree and certification from the School of Education.

* School of Liberal Arts students at IUPUI must see an academic advisor prior to program planning.
