2017-2018 Graduate Academic Catalog

Licensure Programs — Additional information for Enrolled Students

Programs for educational personnel (teachers, guidance counselors, and specialists) are designed to lead to either a degree or licensure and meet current Massachusetts licensure regulations. See approved program of study for specific requirements.

Candidates are required to register online at www.doe.mass.edu/educators/ for Massachusetts licensure shortly after acceptance into their program. Test performance will be logged into the candidate's electronic application. When all state requirements have been satisfied, the Lesley Educator License and Certification Office will send the student’s endorsed transcript to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education in a batch and will also electronically endorse each candidate. Students may request an endorsed transcript online at www.lesley.edu/certification through the Lesley University Certification Office website.

The University, via the Lesley Educator License and Certification Office, forwards endorsed transcripts to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, Office of Teacher Licensure. The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education gives priority to Lesley University batches. Students should apply for licensure at www.mass.gov/doe/educators and request an endorsed transcript from Lesley University. Instructions for online applications are available through the Lesley Educator License and Certification Office website: www.lesley.edu/certification.
