Educator Licensure

Educator Licensure

The HGSE Licensure Unit assists students by responding to questions about educator certification, informs the HGSE community about matters related to licensure regulations, policies and Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL), and endorses graduates of our state approved educator licensure programs so that they can be awarded licenses by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE).

The unit expedites the Massachusetts licensure process for Harvard students in our state approved programs leading to licenses as academic teachers, reading specialists, school principals/assistant principals, school guidance and school adjustment counselors. The unit also verifies completion of HGSE's state approved licensure programs for graduates applying for out-of-state licenses.
