Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) Licensure Requirements for Adaptive Special Education

Shaping the future of special education students around the country requires a state-issued license. The completion of program requirements at Fort Hays State University partially fulfills licensure requirements for the state of Kansas. Completion of the Master of Science in Adaptive Special Education degree does not guarantee you a license to teach. For current Kansas licensure information, please visit the Licensure Office website.

If you aren't from Kansas, you will need to contact the appropriate state certification office and inquire about the requirements and steps to take for certification, as certification and testing requirements in other states are subject to change. However, the Department of Advanced Education Programs enrolls many students from around the country who have determined that our programs meet their state requirements.

If you have any questions about the Adaptive Special Education program, please contact Dr. Linda Hyatt, Fort Hays State University, Rarick 226, 711 Park Street, Hays, KS 67601 at (785) 628-5580 or lhyatt@fhsu.edu. If you are ready to apply to the program, visit the FHSU Graduate School Website to get started.
