Description

Previous coursework may be considered if appropriate and current. The prescribed coursework enables candidates to become eligible to apply for a teaching license from ODE.

Students should consult the Special Education Department for specific program requirements and refer to the Ohio Department of Education - Educator Preparation website for more information on assessments specific to licensure type.
