The Educator Licensure Office is responsible for enrollment, tracking, and ultimately recommending students for licensure to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. We collaborate and coordinate with the various licensure programs to ensure that students are enrolled in appropriate courses and field experiences (practica), have completed the required MTEL exams, and are ultimately licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
All candidates for educator licenses (including any teaching, administrative, counseling, or school psychology license) must complete four forms, which will be filed in the Educator Licensure Office (Room 130 Furcolo). An explanation of when each form should be submitted is described within the link for each form.
Please note that the Educator Licensure Office must have a copy of your MTEL score report on file for licensure purposes. (Yes, in most cases we do receive your scores electronically from the testing company; however, the scores are sent as a long roster of names/scores and cannot be used for individual files or licensure applications.)
All of the above forms (1-4) must be completed and submitted so that we can prepare transcripts and support your application for licensure. You can help the process run more efficiently by submitting all of the requested information in a timely fashion as you progress through your program.
