Licensure Only Track Schedule

The Licensure Only (LO) track is designed for students who already have a Master’s degree, and want to receive a Utah administrative license. Students in this track complete 27 hours of course credit and complete the state-required 450-hour internship. Coursework and internships are designed to be completed in 12-16 months. We accept 5-7 LO students each year. Those interested in applying for the LO track are not required to complete a BYU Graduate Studies application, but should complete the School Leadership Application by January 15. Students applying for this track are not required to complete a graduate examination prior to being admitted. Click here for more information about LO schedules and specific coursework.

Cohorts alternate which days most courses are offered. If a cohort meets mainly on Monday and Wednesday evenings (4-7 pm), then the next cohort (entering the next year) meets mainly on Tuesday and Thursday evenings (4:30-7:30 pm). Thus, the first year curriculum and the second year curriculum are offered on different evenings allowing for students increased flexibility to design their curricular path.
