Alternative Route to Licensure Program

Did you ever dream of becoming a teacher?

The Alternative Route to Licensure (ARL) program provides a route for individuals who hold a bachelor's degree other than teaching and aspires to become an elementary or secondary teacher. The ARL program is a fast-paced program that offers the possibility of receiving a conditional teaching license in the state of Nevada after one semester (based on successful completion of licensing requirements). The ARL program offers coursework aligned to an elementary or secondary teaching license with the option for a Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree.
