Post-Baccalaureate Licensure

UW-Parkside has a pathway for you if you are considering a career change or are currently teaching on an emergency license. Your educational practice and theory classes will be offered through Parkside. When you meet with a program administrator here at Parkside, we will ask that you provide unofficial transcripts and other relevant documentation upon request.
