Educator License Reciprocity*

The state of Indiana has a compact agreement with most states. This means that if you hold an initial teacher or administrator license in Indiana, you may be able to gain equivalent licensure in the state where you live or intend to be employed.

States may still have additional requirements for licensed educators in another state. These additional requirements are called “Jurisdiction Specific Requirements” (JSRs). These additional requirements usually vary depending on the educator’s years of experience, content exams, or state specific coursework requirements. Some jurisdictions, however, consider themselves “full-reciprocity” and do not have any additional requirements.

For current information regarding license educator reciprocity by state, please visit the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification .

Out-of-State Pathway*

ACE educator preparation programs for teachers, principals, or content endorsement are CAEP accredited and approved by the Indiana State Department of Education. That means that graduates may be able to apply to their state as an out-of-state graduate of an CAEP accredited and Indiana DOE approved program.

States may still have additional requirements for accredited or state-approved educator preparation program graduates from another jurisdiction. These additional requirements are called “Jurisdiction Specific Requirements” (JSRs). Such requirements may include, but are not limited to, years of experience in a prior or current position, additional state-specific coursework, internship hours, content test passage, or additional state-specific training.
