• Professional Licensure Disclosures

    Federal regulations require us to provide current and prospective students our determination of whether the licensure program meets the educational requirements, does not meet educational requirements, or if we have not made the determination for graduates to be eligible to apply for licensure - for each state.  Below is a list of Hamline programs that have had a determination made for Minnesota licensure.

    Teacher Education (initial and additional education licensure programs):
    Meets MN state licensure requirements. For a state other than MN, please contact the School of Education at education@hamline.edu or (651) 523-2600 for information about whether the program will meet the licensure requirements for that state.

    Administrative Licensure (Director of Special Education, Superintendent, Principal):

    Paralegal:
    The Paralegal Certificate is approved by the American Bar Association Standing Committee on Paralegals. It prepares graduates for initial employment as a paralegal in Minnesota, and any state in which licensure is not required. It does not currently lead to licensure or certification for any profession in any state, and does not qualify graduates to practice law or take the bar exam. For more information about employment and certification as a paralegal, please contact Leondra Hanson at lhanson18@hamline.edu.


    For all additional programs and states, Hamline's programs are not intended to lead to licensure or certificate at this time.
