West Chester University is approved to offer Education Preparation Programs that lead to certification/licensure in Pennsylvania. While we monitor certification/licensure laws in each state, state requirements are subject to change without notice. If you are interested in certification/licensure outside of Pennsylvania, we encourage you to contact the appropriate state licensing agency to seek guidance and verify requirements before beginning a program and during your program of study. Please note, some states may require you to complete the edTPA, a performance-based assessment, in order for you to be certified/licensed.
