To qualify for teacher certification in Oklahoma, a minimum of a baccalaureate degree or equivalent AND copy of the applicant’s teaching credentials are required. Credentials must include transcripts from a teacher training program and a letter from the university indicating that the applicant is qualified to teach in the country of teaching training. The applicants must submit documentation confirming employment as a teacher for at least 2 of the 5 years preceding the application for certification. The applicants must have any degrees and teaching credentials earned from a country other than the United States evaluated by a reputable educational credential service.  If a license is not held, the applicants are expected to provide the documentation that would demonstrate that they are eligible to be employed as a teacher in their own country.
