Be sure to confirm your specific teaching license renewal requirements with your state or local license-granting authority prior to enrolling.
South Carolina teachers may earn a Professional Certificate that must be renewed every 5 years. South Carolina teachers who have not earned a masters degree, must earn 120 renewal credits (equal to 3 semester hours), of which 60 of the required hours must be earned through graduate-level coursework through a regionally-accredited institute of higher education.
Model Teaching offers courses provided through regionally-accredited university partners. These institutions are accredited by several accrediting agencies. Our Academic Credit University-Partnered Academic Credit Courses should meet the requirements for South Carolina teacher license renewal and Professional Development requirements. All courses completed through our academic partners will include access to an official transcript from that academic institution for submission to any license-granting authority.
If you would like to confirm approval of a course, please feel free to complete and email our Request Course Approval form to the South Carolina Department of Education.
Note: Jason Flatt Act
Educators working in a public middle or high school setting must satisfy the Jason Flatt Act requirements before their professional certificate can be renewed. Please see the South Carolina Department of Education web site for more information about the Jason Flatt Act.
