Alternative Principal Licensure Program

This program is designed for candidates who have been hired as principals and who need to complete a principal licensure program. This one-year online program provides extensive support and is modeled after our traditional principal program. Candidates must have three years' licensed experience in an elementary or secondary school and have secured a position that requires that the individual hold a principal license. Upon completion of the one-year program, individuals may continue on to complete a master's degree and, if desired, complete an additional 12 semester hours to be eligible for an administrator license.
