Alternative Teacher Certification Guide

Alternative or non-traditional teacher certification was initially introduced to fill critical teacher shortages. Today, alternative certification has been widely adopted as a way to recruit talented individuals in all subjects who have a passion for teaching but do not have backgrounds in education. According to a 2012 survey by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), 14.6% of teachers leading classrooms in public schools entered teaching through an alternative pathway. 1

Alternative routes to teaching are available in the majority of states and offer those who have not completed coursework in education the opportunity to meet standards and become educators licensed to teach in public schools. If you are interested in becoming a teacher, continue reading to find an overview of the most common options for alternative certification as well as links to our state-by-state guides.


In most states, candidates for alternative routes must have at least a bachelor’s degree, preferably with a major in the academic subject he or she would like to teach. This education allows individuals to accelerate their transition to the classroom, as teacher preparation programs for these candidates can be completed in as little as one to two years.

Alternative and online teacher preparation programs may lead to a post-graduate certificate or a master’s degree, depending on the program followed and the guidelines of the state in which a candidate is pursuing certification. Many states have pathways that grant individuals who are enrolled in an alternative program a transitional or provisional teaching certificate, which enables students to teach full-time while completing a teacher preparation program.

Every state has its own routes and certification requirements for those who have a degree in a subject other than education and are interested in becoming a teacher. For those considering out-of-state or online alternative programs, it’s important to know that the majority of states require prospective teachers to attend a program that has been approved by that state’s teacher licensing or certification board, or by the licensing or certification board in the state where the program is located.

In addition, in most cases, prospective teachers will need to pass the same exams for educator licensing as traditional-route educators but may be granted additional time to do so depending on the routes available.

Those considering becoming a teacher through alternative routes should be sure to check with the educator licensing agency of that state for current requirements and limitations. Many states do not issue certain types of teaching certificates to alternative route candidates; for example, special education and Factory Outlet For Sale Christian Dior Leather Cutout Sandals Shopping Online Original 3zcCcc15
are commonly excluded from alternate route pathways because those who have a bachelor’s degree in another subject will not be able to meet the intensive coursework requirements for these endorsements. In addition, some states limit alternative route teachers to teaching only in shortage areas or at certain grade levels, commonly secondary (grades 9-12).
