Post-Masters Certification (Type 75) in Educational Administration

The licensure in educational administration is available if you have a graduate degree in an educational field other than administration.

Preparing You For Success

The licensure in educational administration prepares you to take the qualifying state test and apply for principal licensure in Illinois by taking administrative courses not included in your graduate degree. An internship with a school administrator mentor is part of the experience. You may enroll in the program after completing two years of classroom experience.

Making Your Mark
