Summer Licensure Orientation
This mandatory summer session is packed with valuable information that is critical for the success of every licensure student. In addition to meeting your instructors, coaches and peers, you’ll be introduced to the technology platforms where you will engage with your own coursework.
This event is always scheduled for the last weekend in July, so be sure to clear your calendar for that Friday afternoon through Sunday. Specific dates and orientation details will be emailed to you when you are accepted to the program.
“Before attending Summer Licensure Orientation, I had an endless list of questions and fears. After this experience, I feel so much more at ease. This was a wonderful experience that every future educator should attend.”
“Summer Licensure Orientation was such a great way to meet the teachers and make the whole online experience personal.”
“Deeply passionate program professors/staff.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to express how the summer licensure orientation helps students. I have done online programs in the past (a two-year Master’s program). This is the first program I got the opportunity to meet in person with the other students and faculty. I had no idea what I was missing! The camaraderie built in those few moments will really help when I see names again in an online discussion. Rather than shaking my head at a screen online later, I see myself taking in fellow student discussion posts with empathy and compassion. Having this attitude will deepen my own learning.”
