Educator Certification Options
Teaching or Administrative Certificates Expired Less Than Five Years
Individuals wishing to renew a Nebraska teaching certificate which is expired less than five years must complete six hours of college credit at a four year institution that is accredited for teacher education.
Students entering the six-hour renewal program can apply as an unclassified graduate student or as a non-degree-seeking undergraduate student. We recommend entering as an unclassified graduate student as it provides the opportunity to take either graduate or undergraduate coursework. Please make sure to select either Elementary Education or Secondary Education when applying. You will find the application for admittance at the following link: www.unomaha.edu/graduate-studies/ The deadlines for graduate applications are July 1 for Fall; December 1 for Spring; and April 1 for Summer. Students who miss the deadline should follow the procedure for non-degree students.
