Our team of licensure advisors are here to help you with everything from the time you are admitted to program completion. They will set up an initial-advising meeting with you to go over your course planner and learning contract. Potential equivalencies are determined at this time, in addition to answering your questions about the program. Advisors can direct you to the appropriate administrators and faculty members should you have specific needs or questions.

Candidates may bring in 1/2 of their pedagogy courses. For the different license areas, this would translate to:
In general, candidates may only bring in coursework with a "B-" letter grade or higher. There may also be some time-limit restrictions in terms of what types of courses will be accepted.
Students may petition to have up to one "C+" or "C" course counted toward licensure. Students who are seeking licensure in high-needs areas may be considered for additional waivers at the discretion of the petitions committee. Click here to access the petition form. In the petition, the student must provide a clear rationale for how she or he believes that despite the final grade earned, what evidence could be provided to make the case that the student still developed a strong grasp of the course's content and standards. Contact your license advisor for more information. Petitions are reviewed on a monthly basis by a faculty and staff committee.
Testing requirements are dependent upon licensure type, and each MTLE includes multiple subtests. To pass an exam, candidates must pass each subtest.
Candidates in the MAT/Initial-Licensure Program are advised to take their Basic Skills MTLEs within Semester 1.
Be sure to regularly check your Hamline account to learn of MTLE prep opportunities off-campus or on-campus. The department will update students as paid or tuition-free opportunities come up.Learn about the Minnesota Teacher Licensure Examinations >
