Educator Licensing at Purdue Calumet

The College of Education at Purdue University Calumet aims to provide friendly, knowledgeable and expedient services to all individuals who request assistance and information about teacher education. Our Licensing officers and the Dean’s office supports accreditation activities by assisting prospective students, current students, faculty, staff, alumni, and P-12 educators with teacher preparation, licensure and continuing education needs.

Our office processes students’ applications for all teacher education programs, including initial and renewal licensing. As a student, please be aware that admission to the Purdue University Teacher Education Programs is a separate and distinct step beyond admission to the University and that the standards for admission to, and retention in, teacher preparation programs are higher than those required to remain in good standing within the University. Our office also provides explanation and interpretation of teacher licensing requirements. Students who have completed teacher education programs are evaluated and recommended for licenses. This office maintains licensing records and provides accreditation support.
