Do I have to take a test to be a teacher?
If you are pursuing a U.S. teacher license, then yes, we will have you complete all the requirements for a Hawaii State license which includes a series of PRAXIS tests. For international students, these tests are usually not required. But Home Country Requirements must be met. See the advisor.

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:
1) undergraduate completion of a Teacher Education Program
2) post-graduate completion of a Teacher Education Program (often called our 5th year program, not a degree - leads to licensure only, available to Hawaii residents
