NC State Licensure Examination Requirement

All persons qualifying for licensure in North Carolina in the areas Elementary Education, Birth to Kindergarten Education and Special Education must pass the designated Praxis II specialty area test(s), as required.  Alternative licensure teachers must meet Praxis II requirements as defined by current NC State Board of Education policy. 
The School of Education must receive an official copy of satisfactory scores before a recommendation for licensure can be forwarded to the NC State Department of Public Instruction.  Candidates should have their scores sent directly to the University by the testing company.  Candidate copies are not accepted.  Applications and information about the Praxis II tests are available at the Educational Testing Service website at http://www.ets.org.
