K-12 School Library Media Licensure Admissions


This 29 credit-hour course of study leads to a multi-age licensure in school library media. This program prepares graduates to work in school libraries only and incorporates courses from Library and Information Science and Instructional Technology. Upon completion of the program students are qualified to sit for a state exam and apply for licensure.

Please note: Those seeking licensure in the state of Ohio must have current teaching credentials to be eligible for the School Library Media Licensure-only program. A dual degree option is available for those who do not have current teaching credentials.

Applicants who are not in Ohio should contact their state’s Board of Education for any unique requirements.

For more information, visit the K-12 School Librarianship page.

Applicants to the Licensure-only option should submit the online graduate non-degree application and pay the application fee. To select the correct non-degree application applicant should enter the following:

Admitting Academic Unit: College of Communication and Information
Program: School Library Media Licensure
Major: School Library Media

Applicants to the School Library Media Licensure program are required to submit the same supplemental documents as those applying to the Master of Library and Information Science program and are reviewed according to the same admission standards.
