Does OEO offer a non-traditional path or a fast-track to Virginia teaching licensure?
We do! For the past twelve years, Shenandoah University has offered the Career Switcher program. Career Switchers is an accelerated route to licensure for adult students already holding a Bachelors degree from a regionally accredited university and at least 3 years full time work experience (or its equivalent). Please visit the Career Switcher program for additional details.
