NC State Licensure Examination Requirement

All candidates for initial licensure in North Carolina must submit qualifying scores on the appropriate edTPA performance-based, subject-specific assessment. In addition, all candidates for licensure in North Carolina must earn passing scores on licensure exams as defined by current NC State Board of Education policy (note: current SBE policy does not require an exam for Birth-Kindergarten licensure). See the program coordinator or director for information about licensure exam requirements and CLICK HERE. Please be sure to review the State Board of Education Policy.

Candidates should begin their application for the license immediately following internship. Candidates must have their scores sent directly to the University (UNCP code: RA5534) and the NC Department of Public Instruction by the testing company. Candidate copies are not accepted. Applications and information about the licensure requirements are available at the following websites:
