University-Based Alternative Route for Teaching Grades P-12

You are a candidate for this route if you:

  • Have a bachelor's or master's degree; and
  • Meet university admission standards.

This alternative route to certification allows for the completion of the approved preparation program with concurrent employment in a school district. A candidate receives a Temporary Provisional Certificate and participates in the Kentucky Teacher Internship Program (KTIP) or the Kentucky Principal Internship Program (KPIP). The candidate must complete all requirements within 3 years (2 years for administration) and pass all required assessments prior to entering KTIP.

Persons interested in this option should contact the College of Education officials at their respective college or university.
