DLiTE was developed as a comprehensive elementary education licensure program for both rural and urban students who cannot attend a full-time, campus-based teacher education program. It is a cohort-based, 6-semester course of study that culminates in a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. New cohorts start each Spring (January) and Fall (August-September).

This is a three year program, regardless of what degrees applicants hold. Online learning will involve using the web-based instructional management system‚ D2L Brightspace. Because the DLiTE program is a hybrid model, students have opportunities for financial aid.

In-Person Meetings

Face-to-face meetings are mandatory attendance and take place at the Anoka Ramsey Community College – Coon Rapids Campus. We meet each August, December and May to start the courses and take each semester’s finals. The meetings last Friday-Sunday.

Student Teaching

Student teaching is completed the last semester of the program and is done in person in a nearby K-6 public elementary school. Assignments are given to students in areas near where they live.


If you have questions regarding education transfer credits or have advising issues, please contact our DLiTE Advisor, Lisa Krall. Please be sure to view the Program of Study which lists the specific courses and the credits and check your courses for equivalencies prior to making the call. Keep in mind the courses you will be taking in the DLiTE Program are education courses specific to licensure so not many will transfer unless they are equivalencies to these courses.
