Elementary Education Transition to Teaching (Graduate Licensure)


The University offers an Elementary Education Transition to Teaching (T2T) Program that enables individuals who already hold a bachelor’s degree to further their careers and obtain an Indiana teaching license. This is a graduate-level, non-degree, initial licensure program.

The program is ideal for individuals who wish to change careers or for individuals currently working in the educational setting who want to gain the required content knowledge and student teaching experience required to teach in elementary schools.

Note: This program is offered via online learning.

Required Courses

In addition, the Elementary Education Transition to Teaching Program is approved by the Indiana Department of Education. All educator licensure programs and related school programs at Indiana State University are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).

Financial Aid & Scholarships

Graduate students may be eligible for federal student loans if they are admitted into graduate degrees (or first-time teacher certification programs) and meet other eligibility requirements. Certificate programs are not eligible for financial aid. Private alternative loans can help students pay college expenses that may not be covered by federal loan programs or other financial aid. For more information, visit financial aid.

In addition, students may be eligible for payment plans and veterans benefits. On-campus degree-seeking students may be eligible for special scholarships for residents of Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, and the Midwest Consortium.
