Office of Licensure

The Office of Licensure is a component of the Office of Student Services in the College of Education. Its mission is to ensure that individuals seeking careers in education are properly certified/licensed with adherence to the current guidelines of the Ohio Department of Education (ODE).  To that end, we:

  • validate completion of program and degree requirements.
  • validate successful completion of Ohio's required licensure tests.
  • verify completion of University of Akron programs for those seeking licensure/certification in states outside Ohio.
