Do I have to take a test to be a teacher?
If you are pursuing a Hawaii teacher license, then yes, you will have to pass a series of PRAXIS tests. For international students, these tests are usually not required. But Home Country Requirements must be met. See the advisor.

When are PRAXIS tests offered?

How does a person get a teacher's license?
BYU Hawaii provides a Teacher Education Program which is a requirement for licensing. Actual teacher licenses are governed by each individual state. Check our web site for each state requirements.

For Hawaii, we offer 3 programs:
