Administrator Licensure Program

The University of Oregon Administrator Licensure Program (ALP) offers preliminary (PreAL) and professional (ProAL) administrator licensure and concurrent degree programs in Eugene, Central Oregon, and the Portland metropolitan area. Most programs have a hybrid model of instruction. The combination of online classes and classroom instruction provides students from every part of Oregon with the opportunity to work with both nationally recognized College of Education faculty and exemplary administrators.

Professional Administrator License

The University of Oregon's Continuing Administrator Licensure (CAL) program is designed to prepare school leaders to meet the challenging demands of their careers in educational administration. The program emphasizes the development of expertise in professional practice and is intended for individuals who wish to pursue careers as superintendents, administrators, staff developers, curricularists, or professors of education specializing in the preparation of educators.

Special Education: Early Intervention Licensure and Endorsement

Students enrolled in the Early Intervention Program may elect to pursue a Preliminary Teaching License with an endorsement in ‘Special Education: Early Intervention.’ The program integrates didactic course work with practical experience. This preliminary license and endorsement qualifies successful candidates to work as Early Intervention/Early Childhood Special Education Specialists for young children with special needs from birth to grade four. Full-time students complete the program in four to five terms.

Special Education, Kindergarten - 12th Grade License

This two-year licensure and endorsement program prepares pre-service or in-service teachers to work with students with disabilities ages 3-21 in a variety of settings including early childhood/elementary and middle/high school. Graduates of the program are prepared to apply for an initial special education teaching license and endorsement across these multiple levels making this a highly flexible option.

Preliminary Administrator License

Oregon requires administrators in public schools (vice principals, principals, assistant superintendents, superintendents, and other designated personnel) to hold administrative licenses. The Initial Administrator Licensure program is dedicated to preparing school administrators to lead and manage schools that maximize learning for all students. The twelve month cohort licensure program and the two-year MEd/IAL program both prepare students for the Oregon initial administrator license, issued by Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission. The standards-driven program features collaborative teaching between university faculty and practitioners which fosters mentor-relationships with practitioners.
