The Office of Field Placement and Licensure in the Graduate School of Education (GSE) is responsible for processing all of the teacher educator, administrator, and counselor educator (preK-12) recommendations for licensure for Oregon's Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC) and for all other states.
Licensure recommendations are processed for students who have completed one of the Oregon approved GSE licensure programs.
For specific questions about Oregon licensure, unrelated to one of the GSE approved licensure programs, please contact Oregon's TSPC directly.
