(Once all Oregon license program requirements, including the edTPA and tests, are complete, you are eligible to be recommended for a full, regular license in any state.)

How Long Do I Have to Complete My Program and Apply to TSPC?

“Programs of study for licensure, endorsements, and certificates* must be completed within five years of matriculation, except the Professional Administrator License program, which must be completed within nine years of matriculation. This includes required subject-area tests if the student intends to apply to the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC) for a license or endorsement.” Lewis & Clark Graduate School Catalogue, 2017-’18

How long will it take TSPC to update my license?

TSPC’s license processing time is approximately 4-12 weeks.
