Secondary Education Transition to Teaching (Graduate Licensure)


The Secondary Education Transition to Teaching Program is a post-baccalaureate, non-degree license program for secondary teachers. The program is designed to provide an alternative graduate-level program for teacher licensure for individuals who have already earned a baccalaureate degree in a related content area.

Candidates completing this program will be eligible for an Indiana Teaching License to teach in middle school, junior high school, and senior high school settings in the content area or areas in which the individual meets program requirements.

Required Courses

In addition, all educator licensure programs and related school programs at Indiana State University are accredited by the Indiana Department of Education and 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.
