Educator Licensure in Earth and Space Science


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

Students wishing to receive initial licensure in Earth and Space Science to teach in grades 9-12 must schedule an interview with the departmental licensure coordinator to formulate a specific plan of study. Consulting the coordinator before registering for the initial term will facilitate expeditious completion of the program.

The specific plan of study for meeting licensure or endorsement requirements must be approved by the departmental licensure coordinator. Students must consult with the coordinator each semester before registering and are responsible for timely submission of the several required applications and permits.

Students who are also pursuing an advanced degree in earth, atmosphere and environment should consult their academic advisor and the licensure coordinator before registering for their first term at NIU. Students seeking educator licensure or endorsement without enrollment in the degree program should, prior to their first registration, consult the departmental licensure coordinator.
