Institutional Recommendation (IR)
NAU’s education degree programs leading to licensure are approved by the Arizona State Board of Education (ASBE). Students graduating from an ASBE approved program leading to teacher or school leadership, psychology, or counseling certification will be eligible for an Institutional Recommendation (IR). The graduate presents the IR issued by NAU to the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) along with all other required documentation. The IR allows ADE to process the graduate’s application for certification without further transcript review.
Out of state licensure information
For students interested in seeking licensure in another state, NAU is not able to confirm whether a program or course meets requirements for licensure in that state. Please check with the appropriate licensing board in the state where you want to be licensed to determine whether NAU’s program or course will meet requirements.
