A note about licensure

The M.A.T. and T2T programs are approved by the Indiana Department of Education for an initial teacher license. In addition to completion of the M.A.T. or T2T, Indiana has other teacher licensing requirements, including but not limited to CPR training and suicide prevention training. All graduates must first obtain an initial teaching license in Indiana before applying for a teacher license in their own state. However, states may have additional licensure requirements. Students are solely responsible for determining whether they are eligible for initial licensure in the state in which they intend to teach. It is vitally important that students know before enrolling and be continually aware of their own state licensure requirements.
