  • Post-Degree Education Licensure

    This is a non-degree program designed for adult students who have already earned a degree and wish to obtain a teaching license. We also have options for currently licensed teachers who want to earn a second license or endorsement, as well as those who just want to take a class or two to renew their license.

    • Where can I read more about the education department and the expectations?
      The Teacher Education and Licensure Handbook (PDF) serves as an orientation to and an overview of our Teacher Education Program at Capital. It contains the program’s mission, goals, and conceptual framework, as well as the policies and requirements you will need to reference for admission to the program, admission to student teaching, graduation, and licensure.
    • What about tuition and financial aid?

      You may qualify for federal student loans - the Assistant Director of Adult & Graduate Education can help.
