If you live in a different state, you will need to contact your state's Department of Education to determine it's license transfer requirements. Each state has it's own licensure requirements. The programs we offer prepare you for licensure in Kansas. Your education degree from FHSU is valid in any state as long as you become licensed to teach in that particular state. For specific information about your state's licensure requirements please visit the Praxis website.

If you live in a country other than the United States, you will need to check with your country to find out about required educational credentials required for teacher licensure. Our programs require clinical experiences that must be completed at an accredited school in your area. In addition, an entrance exam (CORE or ACT) is required for admission to Teacher Education. You must take this exam at an approved testing center. Please visit the Praxis website for information about CORE testing centers; visit the ACT website for their testing center information.

For questions regarding academic advising, contact our Tiger Teacher Nation Advising Center at 785-628-4165 or advisingted@fhsu.edu. Advising offices are located in Rarick Hall 210.
