Alternative Licensure

Program Overview:

The Alternative Licensure Program is for those seeking a teacher licensure in the State of New Mexico. All classes are 8-weeks long, and you can satisfy the internship requirement as you teach full-time as the teacher of record in a PreK-12 private or public New Mexico School. The alternative licensure program is fully online. Students must already have a completed bachelor’s degree, and are required to pass all state licensure examinations following completion of the licensure coursework. For additional requirements for alternative licensure, see the NMPED website:
