Candidates who have completed an approved, traditional teacher preparation program through an accredited college/university and have less than three years of teaching experience under a standard or professional out-of-state teaching license may apply for a Four-Year Resident educator license. If the applicant has taught under a standard or professional out-of-state teaching license for three years or more, they may apply for a professional license. Those who are employed in an Ohio school may apply for a one-year out-of-state teaching license to allow time to complete the required Ohio licensure exam(s). To be eligible for this license, the candidate must hold a valid, standard out-of-state teaching license and have met all requirements for a standard Ohio teaching license except for the Ohio licensure exams.
