Administrator Licensure Program

Administrator Licensure Program

February 11, 2021–The State of Oregon standards for the education and training of Oregon school administrators have changed. These changes, mandated by the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission, require us to redesign and reimagine administrator education at the UO. While we had hoped to launch a new academic program at the same time that our existing ALP was sunsetting, our curriculum remains under development. As such, our existing Administrator Licensure Programs will be closed as of August 01, 2022.

Our plan is to have the new (And, improved!) academic program in place for new students to enter in Fall of 2022. We will post any changes in plans or updates here on this page.

As we close out our existing programs, we want to make you aware of the following:

  • Admission to our administrator licensure programs (PreAL and ProAL) is closed; we are no longer able to accept new students.
  • If you were previously enrolled in one of our administrator licensure programs and have not yet completed the program but would like to finish your administrator licensure program, please contact by March 15, 2021 to discuss re-enrollment.
  • If you are currently enrolled in the ProAL or Master’s/PreAL administrator licensure programs, please know that the final term for completing program requirements is spring 2022. Candidates who do not complete all licensure requirements by the end of this term will not be eligible for licensure under the current program.

We look forward to what the future holds for administrator training at our own institution and across the state.
