Online Educator Preparation Programs

Deciding to enroll in an online educator preparation program requires careful fact checking and consideration. Ohio has a number of Chancellor-approved online educator preparation programs that lead to Ohio licensure. Using our Program Finder, search for Ohio approved online educator preparation programs by selecting the online or blended/hybrid options in the Online Options dropdown box.

If you are considering enrolling in an online educator preparation program outside of Ohio, there are additional considerations. Distance learning programs cannot be assumed to lead to Ohio licensure. Completing a program that does not hold approval from the Chancellor of the Ohio Department of Higher Education results in the need to meet the requirements Out of State Licensure. Additionally, there are implications for student teaching. It is not legal for a non-approved institution, or for an individual enrolled in a program from a non-approved institution to independently arrange for a student teaching assignment in Ohio.
