So you want to earn your Arkansas Teacher Certification? Let's take a look at the step by step instructions:

Traditional Approach for the Arkansas Teacher Certification

  1. Earn a Bachelors Degree or higher from an accredited university. If you already have a Bachelors Degree, then be sure to take your teaching career to the next level and enroll into the Master’s Program
  2. Teacher preparations. This will include teacher prep courses, student teaching, and other types of internships.
  3. Pass your Praxis I (Reading, Writing, and Math), Praxis II, and Praxis II (principles of learning).
  4. Submit the following:
    • Completed Application
    • Official transcripts, degrees, and school credits
    • Documents from your criminal background check
    • Copies of all your test scores
    • Mail To:
      Office of Professional Licensure

  5. Do you want to renew your Arkansas Teacher Certification?

Alternative Approach for the Arkansas Teacher Certification

Alternatively, there is another route you can take to get your Arkansas Teacher Certification. The Arkansas’ Non-Traditional Licensure Program allows you to start teaching before you complete the teacher education program.

  3. Submit the following:
    • Completed Application

    • Must have a 2.5 GPA with Bachelors degree or 2.75 if Master’s degree over the last 60 hours
    • Resume of work history
    • Copies of all your test scores
    • Mail To:
