How to Qualify for Licensure in Montana
For information about educator licensure in Montana, please visit the Office of Public Instruction Educator Licensure website.
The Montana Office of Public Instruction does not accept any type of test other than the Praxis® tests. Additionally, if you completed your Praxis test more than 10 years prior to your application date for licensure in Montana, your test will need to be retaken.
If you test in Montana, your score report will be sent automatically to the Montana Office of Public Instruction. If you test outside of Montana, select the Montana Office of Public Instruction (state code 8653) as a score recipient when you register or on an additional score report request. As an alternative, when you receive your official test score(s) from ETS, you may fax your results to the OPI Licensure Division at 1-406-444-0743.
Those who have completed their teacher educator preparation program through an accredited Montana institution, directly contact the institution’s educator preparation program (EPP) for information relative to Praxis requirements.
