All professional employees in public schools must hold a license for the subject or grade level they teach or for the professional education assignment that they hold.
IMPORTANT LICENSE UPDATE: Effective July 1, 2015, all WCU teacher education degree and licensure-only certification candidates must provide documentation of PASSING scores on all relevant licensure exams PRIOR to recommendation by WCU for a teaching license. Effective August 1, 2015, the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) launched a new online application system. WCU currently does not have electronic transcripts so we will continue to submit applications to DPI by paper. You can now be print your license free of charge. Go to NCDPI Online Licensure System to create an account.
Select your specific area of licensure below. If you have questions after reviewing the instructions, contact the College of Education and Allied Profession’s (CEAP) licensure specialist, Barbara Schade.
