Our mission at the University of Phoenix is to support the initial teacher preparation process. This includes candidate progressions, clinical experiences and practice, and monitoring of regulatory and university mandates.  Graduation from your program does not automatically grant you certification. The College of Education encourages all teacher preparation candidates to research their State Department of Education requirements as licensure requirements are subject to change.

You are responsible for reading through the resources provided and adhering to the guidelines and expectations. Please refer to this resource for program requirements and your State Department of Education website for teacher licensure requirements.
