Licensure in Oregon
Students are advised on Oregon licensure requirements throughout the program. These include required course work, exams, background checks, and fingerprinting. During each phase of the program, the Education Program Coordinator presents students with required documents and information with deadlines for completion. During the full-time student teaching seminar, right before graduation, students complete their teaching license paperwork under the guidance of Education faculty and staff. We work to make the process as simple and stress-free as possible. Oregon’s licensing body is the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC). For more information, see their web site.
