Each state has different requirements for professional licensure and certifications. CSP’s educator preparation programs are designed specifically to prepare students for licensure in Minnesota, but are not approved by any other state licensing boards for licensure in those states. CSP is unable to determine whether its teacher preparation programs would meet the educational requirements for licensure in other states. Students who want to work in a state other than Minnesota should contact the state licensing board in their state before enrolling in the program. Please see the contact information for teacher licensing boards here.
