The COE is working closely with TSPC and edTPA to accommodate licensure candidates in light of school closures. Please contact your cohort leader or advisor for more information.
The Office of Licensure in the College of Education (COE) is responsible for processing license recommendations for COE program completers of our nationally and regionally accredited programs. Educators seeking licensure are recommended to Oregon’s Teacher Standards and Practices Commission, and to all other states.
