Endicott incorporates all required MTEL exams into our relevant education programs so that, upon graduation, you will have completed all of the necessary requirements for licensure in Massachusetts.
In order to become licensed in Massachusetts, you must pass the Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL). At Endicott, we have structured our curriculum to satisfy this requirement by incorporating the relevant MTEL tests into the licensure programs. As a student in our School of Education, you will complete all required MTELs prior to enrolling in the senior year practicum.
Test Preparation Workshops
Endicott offers intensive workshops and tutoring throughout the year to help prepare you to pass the MTEL exams. Test preparation workshops are free of charge and focus on the specific skills and subjects covered on the licensure exams. Workshops are required if you are enrolled in a licensure concentrations and are also available to those who want to meet the requirements to change into the program from another major.

Licensure in Other States
Planning to teach in a state other than Massachusetts? No problem.
If you wish to be licensed to teach in another state, you must still take and pass the MTEL exams as part of the program requirements. However, our department will also work closely with you, helping to define the requirements and procedure for receiving the license in that state. Many of our students are successfully pursuing licenses in multiple states since preparing for, taking, and passing the MTEL is excellent preparation for other exams, such as the PRAXIS.
