Alternative (non-traditional) teacher licensure is an option for those who have not completed traditional teacher preparation programs, but have an interest in changing careers and becoming teachers. If you hold at least a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution and wish to pursue a teaching license, alternative licensure may be the right fit for you. To locate alternative route programs in the Directory of Approved Programs, click “Alternative” under
Program Format at the top of the directory page. Click individual provider logos to discern their alternative licensure program offerings.
