Professional licensure, certification, endorsement, and salary benefit requirements for educators vary from state to state and district to district. American College of Education cannot guarantee licensure, certification, endorsement, or salary benefits. It is the students' responsibility to understand and comply with requirements in the jurisdiction where they choose to work as an administrator. In all cases, students are solely responsible for determining whether they are eligible for licensure and to confirm the precise requirements that must be satisfied to be licensed in that state before beginning the program.
