Licensing

Important Updates:

NEW LICENSE OPTION FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT TAKEN/PASSED the Pedagogy and/Or Content Tests:

Governor Walz approved the bill which allows for a Conditional Tier 3 License for people who have been unable to take the MTLE Pedagogy and Content exams. There are quite a few “conditions” tied to this licensure option. The Certification Officer will be available to explain the Conditional Tier 3 License (in detail). If you have not passed/taken the Pedagogy and/or Content tests, please try to attend one of the sessions or schedule a meeting using the email listed below. Remember, you must have a job offer for a Tier 2 license. You do not need a job offer for the Conditional Tier 3 License.

  1. Wednesday, June 3rd from 4pm – 6pm
  2. If you are unable to attend one of the above, please schedule an appointment via email: Teaching.License@bemidjistate.edu
