Overview of the Transition to Teaching Online Program

If you’re passionate about helping others learn and reach their full potential, it’s time to answer your calling to teach. IWU’s Transition to Teaching (TTT) Certificate contains all the courses required to make a career change and become a licensed teacher in Indiana. Through this program, you can follow your path to becoming a teacher – even if you didn’t major in education!

The Transition to Teaching program is a graduate-level, non-degree initial licensure program. It prepares candidates to apply their expertise, assessment knowledge, and instructional practices to technology-rich, student-focused learning environments. Program specializations include:

“My IWU journey went from just gaining a degree to helping me grow and mature in every way possible.” -Rena McMahon, Teacher

Following your calling is about more than just a degree – that’s why IWU is here to give you the resources you need to become who you were made to be. As school districts nationwide struggle to hire enough teachers to accommodate their students, now is the perfect time to pursue a teaching career and change the lives of the next generation.

Candidates seeking licensure in states other than Indiana must first obtain their Indiana educator license and then seek licensure in their chosen state through possible reciprocity agreements. If a candidate should relocate to another state, transfer of the earned teaching license from IWU may be possible through a reciprocal agreement. It is the candidate’s responsibility to contact the residency state’s licensing agency for requirements.
