Spring Licensure Classes

CTE Spring Registration

Spring Registration is now closed.

Note for Out-of-State Students:

The Center for Teaching Excellence at the University of Virginia’s College at Wise provides credit-bearing continuing education courses for teachers.  These are taken as individual courses and not as a comprehensive teacher preparation program. The CTE does not provide practicum or internship opportunities required to complete licensure requirements. Continuing teacher education courses are not intended to apply to degree programs. Transfer of credit for coursework is at the discretion of the receiving institution.

Courses from the Center for Teaching Excellence are aligned with the Virginia Department of Education’s requirements for licensure and recertification and can be used to satisfy the professional studies coursework for provisionally licensed teachers.

However, each state has unique requirements for teacher preparation and the use of specific courses for licensing purposes may require the approval of your local license specialist or state agency. At this time, we do not have sufficient information to guarantee the applicability of individual courses to specific requirements outside the state of Virginia.
