It is the responsibility of each applicant to supply official transcripts along with a written request to have credit applied to the degree program.

LICENSURE GUIDELINES
The Teacher Licensure Program is designed to meet licensure requirements of the Commonwealth of Virginia in the student’s approved specialization.  In addition, students who complete the Teacher Licensure Program are eligible for the Association of Christian Schools International certificate.

The Teacher Licensure Program has been officially approved by the Virginia Department of Education and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). Approved programs include all initial licensure M.A.T. programs in Elementary, Secondary, or Special Education. Students entering the M.A.T. program must indicate their intention to pursue Virginia licensure when they apply for candidacy in the graduate program. Each concentration has licensure requirements beyond the master’s degree. Upon completion of all requirements, the student must submit the licensure application and fee to Liberty’s Teacher Licensure Office. Liberty’s Coordinator of Teacher Licensure Records will submit the student’s application packet to the Virginia Department of Education.

Additional Requirements for Virginia Licensure
Every applicant for teacher licensure in Virginia is required to answer two questions:

  1. Have you ever been convicted of a felony?
  2. Have you ever had a teaching license revoked/ suspended in another state?

Initial Elementary, Secondary, and Special Education
The student must:

  1. Hold a bachelor’s degree in a liberal arts area (or equivalent) from an institution that is accredited by an agency that is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Secondary licensure requires a major (or equivalent) in the endorsement area and the successful completion of the Praxis II content exam for the area of endorsement;
  2. Successfully complete Liberty’s M.A.T. in Elementary, Secondary, or Special Education;
  3. Obtain passing scores on all tests required for Virginia licensure; and
  4. Complete a student teaching experience in the endorsement area or submit documentation of one year of successful full-time teaching experience in the endorsement area in any accredited public or nonpublic K-12 school.

Time Limit for School Licensure

  1. Students must have completed all requirements necessary for school licensure within 5 years after completion of the graduate degree;
  2. Students who have completed Liberty’s M.A.T. and wish to return to Liberty University to complete the student teaching or internship required for licensure will be subject to the same five-year timeframe; and
  3. Each case will be evaluated on an individual basis according to transcripts, program changes, time elapsed from completion of coursework, and recent experiences in the field of education.

Licensure in Other States
Students who have completed Liberty’s M.A.T. may be eligible for licensure in other states by interstate agreement. Verification that the student has completed a state-approved program may be required for reciprocity with other states; therefore, it may be necessary for the student to complete the additional requirements listed above for Virginia licensure in order to qualify for reciprocity. Liberty’s Teacher Licensure Office has addresses for the licensing agencies in other states and will assist in completing the appropriate forms. Some states require a state-specific course or test but will grant a provisional license so that the applicant can be employed while completing the additional requirements. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain the appropriate forms from other states to submit to LU’s Licensure Office. 

For further licensure information, contact the Coordinator of Teacher Licensure Records (phone 1-800-522-6255, extension 2632 or 434-582-2632; e-mail: teacher@liberty.edu; fax 434-582-2468).

SCHEDULING RESIDENTIAL COURSES
Residential graduate classes are scheduled as one or two-week intensives during the summer, and in December and January. Weekend classes may be offered during fall and spring. Pre-class and post-class assignments are required for all intensive courses.

LICENSURE GUIDELINES
The Teacher Licensure Program is designed to meet licensure requirements of the Commonwealth of Virginia in the student’s approved specialization.  In addition, students who complete the Teacher Licensure Program are eligible for the Association of Christian Schools International certificate.

The Teacher Licensure Program has been officially approved by the Virginia Department of Education and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). Approved programs include all initial licensure M.A.T. programs in Elementary, Secondary, or Special Education. Students entering the M.A.T. program must indicate their intention to pursue Virginia licensure when they apply for candidacy in the graduate program. Each concentration has licensure requirements beyond the master’s degree. Upon completion of all requirements, the student must submit the licensure application and fee to Liberty’s Teacher Licensure Office. Liberty’s Coordinator of Teacher Licensure Records will submit the student’s application packet to the Virginia Department of Education.

Additional Requirements for Virginia Licensure
Every applicant for teacher licensure in Virginia is required to answer two questions:

  1. Have you ever been convicted of a felony?
  2. Have you ever had a teaching license revoked/ suspended in another state?

Initial Elementary, Secondary, and Special Education
The student must:

  1. Hold a bachelor’s degree in a liberal arts area (or equivalent) from an institution that is accredited by an agency that is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Secondary licensure requires a major (or equivalent) in the endorsement area and the successful completion of the Praxis II content exam for the area of endorsement;
  2. Successfully complete Liberty’s M.A.T. in Elementary, Middle Grades, Secondary, or Special Education;
  3. Obtain passing scores on all tests required for Virginia licensure; and
  4. Complete a student teaching experience in the endorsement area or submit documentation of one year of successful full-time teaching experience in the endorsement area in any accredited public or nonpublic K-12 school.

Time Limit for School Licensure

  1. Students must have completed all requirements necessary for school licensure within 5 years after completion of the graduate degree;
  2. Students who have completed Liberty’s M.A.T. and wish to return to Liberty University to complete the student teaching or internship required for licensure will be subject to the same five-year timeframe; and
  3. Each case will be evaluated on an individual basis according to transcripts, program changes, time elapsed from completion of coursework, and recent experiences in the field of education.

Licensure in Other States
Students who have completed Liberty’s M.A.T. may be eligible for licensure in other states by interstate agreement. Verification that the student has completed a state-approved program may be required for reciprocity with other states; therefore, it may be necessary for the student to complete the additional requirements listed above for Virginia licensure in order to qualify for reciprocity. Liberty’s Teacher Licensure Office has addresses for the licensing agencies in other states and will assist in completing the appropriate forms. Some states require a state-specific course or test but will grant a provisional license so that the applicant can be employed while completing the additional requirements. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain the appropriate forms from other states to submit to LU’s Licensure Office. 

Please be advised that our educator preparation programs are NOT accredited in Kentucky by the Education Professional Standards Board and are NOT recognized for initial, additional, or renewal of certification or salary enhancement (rank change) for K-12 educators in Kentucky.
