The alternative licensure path is an option for prospective Middle Level Education teachers who need to earn a salary while pursuing a teaching license. This alternative licensure program enables candidates to hold a paid position as the teacher of record while pursuing an Illinois Professional Educator License (PEL). This transformative and affordable experience is available online and on-campus.


Our alternative licensure programs follow rigorous guidelines that include:

  • accelerated coursework
  • field experiences
  • teaching experiences
  • licensure testing

Candidates enroll in six semesters of program coursework including two intensive summer sessions as they complete a 43-credit hour program leading to a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT).

The alternative licensure programs simultaneously combine accelerated coursework with classroom experiences and one-to-one mentoring.

Candidates in this program will have the guidance and support of a site-based mentor/coach and a University coordinator throughout the two years of required provisional teaching.

Please view the admission requirements, as well as the program requirements and course descriptions in the SXU Academic Catalog for additional information.
