With Principal's Licensure

If you aspire to become a K-12 school administrator, our program in educational administration provides teachers with the education required for a K-12 administration and supervision license.

Delivery Method
Courses for this program are offered 100 percent online and the program can be completed in as little as 18-20 months.

The Program
In addition to the appropriate degree program, you must have a minimum of two years teaching experience and successfully complete the School Leaders Licensure Assessment examination (SLLA) to qualify for the license. The initial administrative license is issued for two years. Once you begin your first administrative job, you will then be in a two-year administrative induction and assessment program.

The degree program totals 36 hours of graduate work, which includes a 6-hour principal internship and a 3-hour research methodology course. The internship may be served at the teacher's choice of schools, one semester at an elementary school and another at either a middle or high school. You must maintain a grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.
