Educator Licensing

Looking to earn your full licensure in special education? Indiana Special Education Assisted Licensure (I-SEAL) provides Indiana’s current and future special education educators with access to convenient, accelerated options and key financial support.

  • For educators licensed in another subject: Currently-licensed teachers who wish to add special education to their existing license can participate in a fully-funded 18-credit hour graduate program through the University of Indianapolis, Taylor University or Indiana Wesleyan University.
  • For individuals currently enrolled in a graduate-level special education preparation program: Individuals who are currently enrolled in a graduate-level special education teacher preparation program can earn scholarship assistance to support the completion of their required special education coursework and purchase textbooks.
  • For non-education bachelor’s degree holders: Special education educators who have not earned full licensure but hold a non-education bachelor’s degree can receive a full scholarship to enroll in a federally-compliant Transition to Teaching program. Seven Transition to Teaching programs in special education are currently available across Indiana.
  • For individuals who have not yet passed the state licensing exam: Individuals who have completed a special education preparation program but have not yet passed the state licensure exam can participate in a free test-preparation workshop.

Eligible individuals can learn more and apply for assistance by visiting IndianaSEAL.org.
