New Mexico - Professional Program Standards and Requirements: Educator Preparation Policy

Educator Preparation Policy
Policy Type: 

Under the rules of the Professional Licensure Bureau of the New Mexico Public Education Department.


As an applicant for teacher licensing, you are expected to have at least a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university offering an approved educator preparation program. If you completed a teacher preparation program in a college/university outside of New Mexico, your credits will usually be accepted as long as the program and institution are regionally accredited and approved by that state’s Department of Education.
