About the Superintendent License

The Ed.D. program leads to North Carolina licensure as a superintendent. Once you have completed the Ed.D. program requirements and portfolio artifacts, you will be eligible to apply for a School Administrator – Superintendent License, adding it to your current Professional Educator’s Continuing License. 

We encourage all Ed.D. candidates who do not currently hold a North Carolina Principal License to become licensed during their studies by taking an additional three courses from our MSA program. Contact your advisor to discuss this option. 

A North Carolina School Administrator – Superintendent License falls under the requirements for School-Based Administrators and Special Services Personnel.
