Students who successfully complete program requirements and meet the Minnesota requirements for licensure are eligible for a Minnesota license.

To ensure that all teacher graduates are assignable anywhere in our country, MLC requires all teacher graduates to be eligible for either a full five-year Minnesota license or a temporary one-year Minnesota license. While Minnesota law requires passing scores on all Minnesota Teacher Licensure Examinations (or substitutions determined by the Minnesota Board of Teaching) to obtain a full five-year license, graduates may obtain a temporary one-year teaching license if a test is not passed. Note: Minnesota licensure requirements are subject to change at any time.

The Minnesota Board of Teaching, upon the request of a student preparing for teacher licensure or a licensed graduate of the college’s teacher preparation program, will assist in resolving a dispute between the person and Martin Luther College when the dispute involves the college’s recommendation for licensure affecting the person’s credentials.
