College of Education

Office of Educator Preparation and Licensure

The College of Education’s Office of Educator Preparation and Licensure supports individuals seeking teacher licensure. Specifically, they provide support with admission to teacher education, during Residency 2 (i.e., student teaching), and when trying to acquire an initial teacher license or add-on an endorsement to a current teaching license. 

Teacher Licensure Programs

The Tennessee Legislature, the State Board of Education, and the MTSU Council on Teacher Education have approved policies requiring students who wish to prepare for careers as teachers to make formal application for admission to the professional education program. Students are encouraged to contact the College of Education Advising Office regarding requirements for admission to the teacher education program. Information also can be found at

Students seeking licensure to teach must successfully complete the program requirements currently in effect. Students should meet with their College of Education advisor early in their academic career.
