DoD Teacher Certification

Department of Defense Teacher Certification Information


Note: Graduates of WGU teacher preparation programs are not eligible for initial certification with the Department of Defense.

Graduates of Western Governors University's teacher preparation programs must select a state or territory in which to obtain their initial teacher certification. Once initially certified in a state or territory, the educator may then apply for a reciprocal license from the Department of Defense.


For additional information about becoming certified through the Department of Defense visit the U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity (DODEA) website.
