Licensing Renewal Requirements

The IU Southeast School of Education offers the following programs for teachers to renew and/or enhance their license through additional coursework. Courses may be taken that will fulfill both Indiana and Kentucky requirements for license renewal.

Non-Degree Status (license renewal)

Non-degree status is available for individuals seeking 6 graduate credit hours for license renewal. In addition, candidates seeking graduate program admission can enroll as non-degree-seeking students, taking up to 6 graduate credit hours while completing applications for full admission to a graduate or licensure program.

Rank Change

Kentucky teachers may receive a rank change with a total of 30 or more graduate credit hours (Rank II) or 60 or more graduate credit hours (Rank I) with completion of a master's degree or a licensing program. Candidates must complete a Rank I licensure program (Computer Education, Educational Leadership, ESL/ENL, Gifted and Talented, or Reading) to meet the Rank I requirement of 60 or more graduate credit hours. For the rank change, please see testing requirements. The University must recommend the candidate to the Kentucky EPSB for the change upon completion of licensure programs. Completion of a CA-1 application is required by Kentucky EPSB and must be submitted to IU Southeast. An Indiana license is required prior to adding an endorsement to a Kentucky license.

Kentucky Educators

Educators licensed in Kentucky need official paper transcripts for license renewal and/or rank change applications. OE Transcripts with grades are usually available about two weeks after the end of each term (Fall, Spring, Summer 1, and Summer 2). (While some courses are finished in late July, grades will not be posted until mid-August.) Degrees are awarded three times each year: 5/31, 8/31, and 12/31.
