Because each state has its own laws and standards regrading teacher preparation, our teacher education programs do not prepare candidates for licensure in states other than Colorado.

If you are planning to seek professional licensure or certification in a state other than Colorado, it is strongly recommended that you contact the appropriate licensing entity (linked below) in the state in which you are, or plan to be, located in order to seek information and guidance regarding licensure or certification requirements and how the Colorado license may transfer in advance of program completion.  If you will have to take an additional course or take a different licensure exam in order to transfer your license, then your contact will allow you to plan for that and avoid surprises.
