Conversion of a Standard Teaching License to a Professional Teaching License
If a teacher has a Rules 46/47 standard Indiana teacher's license, it can be converted into a professional license by completing an appropriate master's degree, completing graduate content courses (secondary only), filing an official form, verifying five years of teaching experience after the establishment of the standard license, and submitting an appropriate result from the limited criminal background check. At the time of completion of these requirements, the teacher will be issued a professional license for a 10-year period. After this period, the individual must renew the professional license, by taking 6 credit hours for each 5-year renewal. Each successive 5-year renewal needs 6 additional credit hours of academic work.
