Rank I Change

Kentucky teachers may receive a Rank I with a total of 60 graduate credit hours in Education (or licensed teaching areas), including a master's degree. Post-masters work must be in a planned Rank I program, candidates must be admitted to a licensure program (Computer Education, Educational Leadership, ESL/ENL, Gifted and Talented, or Reading) to meet this requirement. The University must recommend the candidate to the Kentucky EPSB for the change in rank for Licensure Programs; this will include testing ( as required by the EPSB and a CA-1 application for the rank change. An Indiana license is required prior to adding an endorsement to a Kentucky license.

Non-degree status

Candidates may be admitted to the graduate program as a non-degree seeking student for one semester. While completing applications for full admission to one of the graduate programs, candidates may take up to six graduate hours.

KENTUCKY EDUCATORS--ATTENTION!!! Educators licensed in Kentucky need official transcripts for license renewal and/or rank change applications. BE AWARE that official IU Southeast transcripts are not available immediately after coursework is completed. Transcripts with grades are usually available about one week after the end of each term (Fall, Spring, Summer 1, and Summer 2). (While some courses are finished in late July, grades will not be posted until mid-August.) Degrees are awarded three times a year: 5/31, 8/31, and 12/31; degrees are posted to official transcripts on or about 15 days later.
