In compliance with the U.S. Department of Education and the Middle States Commission on Higher Education for participation in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA), Gallaudet University provides information pertaining to professional licensure and certification.
The following is recommended BEFORE beginning a program if considering a Gallaudet University program that leads to professional licensure with the intent to be licensed outside of the District of Columbia:
While a program may not be formally approved, it may still meet all or a portion of the “educational” requirements for licensure in other states and territories. Therefore, it may be necessary for you to contact the licensing agency directly to find out if a Gallaudet University program will meet educational requirements.
Additionally, while progressing through any of these programs, we recommended that you check licensing agency requirements regularly to monitor whether they have changed in a manner that impacts your licensure plans.
To learn more, please review the licensure information provided for the program of interest or review the state dropdownfor all programs.
Students completing one of Gallaudet’s state-approved license programs are eligible for a D.C. State License.
For School Service Providers seeking a D.C. License (i.e., School Psychology or School Social Work),contact the program director in your department for further information. Verification of program completion is signed by Gallaudet’s Certification Officer.
If you will be applying for a teaching license, we recommend that you first get your DC teaching license even if you will later get a license in another state. Why? Often the process is easier if you already have a license in the state in which you completed your program. The information below will help you with both processes.
The certification officer is responsible for verification of program completion. The District of Columbia's Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) follows the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education standards for professional education programs review and licensure. Contact OSSE for information about how...
