Kentucky is part of the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) Interstate Agreement; therefore, the state accepts recommendations from teacher preparation programs from state-accredited colleges and universities in many states. Cases are evaluated on an individual basis. Out-of-state applicants must have completed a state approved teacher preparation program at a regionally accredited educator preparation institution or a state-approved alternative training program. In addition, candidates must comply with the state ancillary requirements such as GPA, testing and internship. Please, keep in mind that no online programs located outside of Kentucky are currently accredited to offer education programs in Kentucky. The EPSB issue sa temporary certificate to out-of-state teachers with less than two (2) years of experience.
