Page address: http://ed.mnsu.edu/licensure/firsttime_licensure.html

Understanding the process

What you must know is that you must send ALL your documents for licensure to the University. We then complile all the required supporting documents. Once we complete the verification we then send your entire pack for licensure directly to PELSB. 

To apply you must first determine that you are ready to apply.

  • In order to qualify for licensure your degree has to be officially awarded or show that you have completed your program. This "generally" occurs up to 5 weeks after graduation. Transcripts are processed by the Registrar's Office for Undergrads and the Graduate Office for Graduate students. Direct all questions about your degree/grade posting to their office.  It is your responsiblity to know whether you are in a degree program or not. If you have questions about what you are waiting for contact your advisor. 
  • You must have taken all of your licensure exams that correspond with the licensure area you are applying for. You must wait until you receive your Official Score report, whether you pass or fail. Exams do not apply to those applying for, Kindergarten, Administrative, or School Counseling. 

Once you determine you have meet the two requirements above you will then click below and answer a few questions so that we can determine your next steps.
