Education Program Finder

The Educator Preparation Program Finder is the complete list of Chancellor-approved programs that lead to Ohio licensure/endorsement. The Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) verifies that programs on this list hold the authority to recommend program completers for an Ohio educator license. Please visit the Ohio Department of Education’s website for additional questions about obtaining an Ohio license by completing a program that is not approved by the Chancellor.
