Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) Licensure Requirements
Shaping the future of students around the country requires a state-issued
license. The completion of program requirements for the Gifted Education program at Fort Hays State University
partially fulfills licensure requirements for the state of Kansas, however it does not guarantee a license to teach.
For current Kansas licensure information, please visit the Licensure Office Website.
Since certification and testing requirements in other states are subject to change, if you work outside Kansas
you will need to contact the appropriate state certification office and inquire
about the requirements and steps to take for certification.
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 are interested in learning more about the Gifted Education program, please contact Dr. Linda Hyatt, Fort Hays State University, Rarick 226, 711 Park Street, Hays, KS 67601 at (785) 628-5580 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are ready to apply to the program, visit the FHSU Graduate School Website to get started.
