Getting a Teaching license
After you graduate and have successfully completed your OAE 006 and OAE 004 tests:
- When you register for the certification tests (004, 006), you need to list ODE as a recipient so you don’t need to upload a copy when applying for your license.
- Once you apply for your license, the Miami certification office will receive an e-mail from ODE that you have applied, will check requirements, and approve. If they don’t have your test results, they will e-mail you for a copy.
- Fingerprints are checked at ODE.
- Even if you plan to teach out-of-state, we highly recommend you apply for your initial Ohio license. It is very wise to have the license from the state where you completed your approved program.
