New Educator Preparation Institute
New Educator Preparation Institute at Ashford University Coming in 2018
The Florida State Department of Education has recently authorized Ashford University as an Educator Preparation Institute (EPI) with approval to offer two teaching credentials.
Ashford University’s Educator Preparation Institute (EPI) exists in the Department of Education Studies within the College of Education. The post-baccalaureate EPI will recommend candidates who successfully complete all requirements of a credential program to the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) to receive an initial elementary or secondary teaching credential in one of over 30 different certification options.
Program Length and Number of Credits
Elementary Pathway – 33 credits, which includes an 18-week student teaching experience
Secondary Pathway – 27 credits, which includes an 18-week student teaching experience
Please note that we are not currently enrolling students in these programs. They are currently pending approval from the U.S. Department of Education, so initial enrollment dates are tentatively scheduled for sometime in 2018. Stay tuned, and check this site for more information as it becomes available.
