Online Principal's License

The online Principal Licensure curriculum is a two-year program. Students complete 30 credit hours (a ten course program which includes the school leadership internship) as an online cohort.

This a highly interactive program requiring extensive communication and sharing of ideas with faculty and fellow students.  Much of your work will be done independently, when and where it fits your schedule. Most online graduate courses are asynchronous, with no required days/times when classes meet. Some courses in the School Leadership program feature synchronous communication with a fixed, live online cohort component.
