Requirements to Teach in Indiana

To be eligible for an Indiana teacher license, applicants must have a Bachelor's degree. They must complete suicide prevention training and earn CPR/AED/Heimlich certification. The programs are typically part of the state's teacher preparation curriculum.

After completion of an approved teacher preparation program, candidates are required to take the Indiana REPA/REPA3 exam that measures knowledge and skills in child development and pedagogy. Some teacher preparation programs require taking the Indiana CORE Academic Skills Assessment that measures content knowledge in the subject(s) to be taught.

There are two levels in the Indiana tiered licensure system - Initial Practitioner and Proficient Practitioner. First-time teachers are issued a two-year, renewable Initial Practitioner License. During the Initial Practitioner phase, teachers complete a two-year mentored internship entitled Indiana Mentoring and Assessment Program. Those who successfully complete the program are issued a five-year, renewable Proficient Practitioner license. A certified teacher must submit to a federal and state background check.

Scholarships/ Financial Aid Available

The number of students who need help paying for a college education is rising. Before applying for loans, students should consider the plethora of grant and scholarship opportunities. Examples include:

Frank O'Bannon Grant - This grant consists of the Freedom of Choice Award and the Higher Education award. The grant is meant to provide Hoosier students access to attend eligible private, public, and proprietary postsecondary institutions. The FASA is used to determine financial need. Regularly assessed fees and tuition can be paid with the funds.

Kosciusko Community Foundations Scholarship - More than $457,000 in scholarships are awarded through nearly 100 available scholarship funds. The scholarships can be used for academic fees, books, and tuition. They cannot be used for room and board.

Both traditional and non-traditional students may apply. Traditional students transition to college or a technical/vocational program straight from high school. Non-traditional students take one or more years off between enrolling in higher education and high school. They are typically 23 years old or older.

Requirements to Qualify for In-State Tuition

It is challenging to obtain in-state tuition for Indiana universities. Applying before moving to Indiana, automatically disqualifies an applicant. Indiana is a Midwest Student Exchange Program member. There is a limited agreement of reciprocity with the select Midwestern States. Many restrictions apply to obtain favorable tuition rates in states that are nearby.

Every university has interpretations of the law that is unique to them. For the University of Indiana, residency classification is based on residency before the first day of classes in a semester or term. A legal resident of Indiana may not qualify for in-state tuition.

For purposes of tuition, residency is based on where taxes are paid, property ownership, and an individual's primary home. Non-resident students, believing they qualify as residents, should provide clear and convincing evidence to the Office of Admission that they resided in Indiana the 12-month period that precedes the first day of classes in the semester in which they seek the classification as quickly as possible.
