Alabama Licensure Information
Boise State University’s Master degree programs in Educational Leadership meet professional licensure standards and make students eligible for recommendation for administrative licensure in the state of Idaho. Obtaining certification in Idaho meets Alabama requirements for administrative licensure through the NASDTEC Interstate Agreement. The Master degree programs in Educational Leadership are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
Licensure in Alabama will be dependent upon alignment of a student’s Idaho administrative license with a comparable license offered by your state. 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. For more information, visit NASDTEC webpage “Information for Out of State Applicants” and Alabama’s State Department of Education website.

One important guideline is that reciprocity is always easier if a student completes the certification requirements and obtains an administrative credential in Idaho before applying for certification in another state.
