• Additional Licensure Program Admission Requirements

    To apply for admission to the Additional Licensure program, you must possess a current Minnesota teaching license and submit the following:

    • Online application (no fee for U.S. residents).
    • A current Minnesota teaching license (Note: A current teaching license in special education is required for the ASD Additional Licensure program)
    • Official transcript of bachelor's degree with a GPA of at least 3.0 from a nationally or regionally accredited college or university. This should be sent directly from the institution to Graduate Admission or provided in a sealed, signed envelope. You do not have to provide transcripts for courses taken at Hamline University.
      Provisional Admission: If you have a GPA of 2.5-2.9, you may be considered for provisional admission. Please provide a one-two page written reflection indicating your plans for meeting the Hamline GPA requirements if admitted to the program. Applicants who have successfully completed a master's degree (GPA >3.0) are exempt from the provisional review process.
    • Essay or Personal Statement, 1-2 pages, reflecting on our professional beliefs, your current and/or prior teaching experience, and the reason(s) you are seeking an additional Minnesota teaching license. You must include two or three professional goals directly related to the new license area. (Note: This essay will also be used prior to entering your Advanced Practicum.)
