Illinois Teacher Licensure and Other States
The following are member states of the NASDTEC Interstate Agreement who have signed reciprocity agreements with Illinois.
|Alabama||Kansas||New Hampshire||South Dakota|
All jurisdictions that participate in the NASDTEC Interstate Agreement may choose to have additional requirements for educators who are coming from another jurisdiction. These additional requirements are known as “Jurisdiction Specific Requirements” (JSRs). Most times these additional requirements vary upon the educator’s years of experience. Some jurisdictions, however, consider themselves “full-reciprocity” and do not have any additional requirements.
IMPORTANT NOTE TO PROSPECTIVE TEACHER CANDIDATES: Each state is responsible for its own certification/licensure requirements, which may change without notice to NASDTEC or your university’s certification officers or your state’s office of certification. You must contact the office of certification in any state to which you may be relocating to get the most accurate information on certification requirements. One important guideline is that reciprocity is always easier if you completed the certification requirements and obtained your teaching credential in the state where you completed your program requirements.
