Institutional Recommendation

Most US states require an Institutional Recommendation from the institution of higher education that prepared the teacher/principal/administrator candidate as part of the licensure application process. The following Colorado state-approved licensure programs fully align to Colorado state standards. Only candidates who graduate from the degree programs listed below are eligible to receive an institutional recommendation from JIU. The submission of passing scores on all state required licensure exams is required in order to receive an Institutional Recommendation from JIU.
