Program Approval and Renewal

The State Board of Education reviewed modifications to the process for EPPs to engage in the institution level and license area/program level approval and/or renewal process. A decision was made at the State Board of Education meeting that took place July 5, 2018. Since that time, the Educator Preparation division has been working to create guides, update the online system, and prepare resources to support EPPs who will be using this system. The process will welcome new, modifications, and/or renewals of existing program/licensure areas. The online system is in it’s final stages of updates, and is anticipated to be launched at the start of the 2018-2019 academic year. Check back for more information.


The following resources were created by the Educator Preparation division at the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) to assist EPPs when completing the online system for program/licensure area approval issued by NCDPI.
