Information in this color shows how TPAI courses support Louisiana teachers.

To reinstate a standard teaching license which has lapsed or expired:

A Louisiana teaching certificate is “lapsed” if an individual has a period of five consecutive calendar years in which he/she is not serving as teacher of record for at least one semester, or 90 consecutive days. If such a period of disuse occurs, the certificate has lapsed. To renew a lapsed certificate you must provide evidence that you have earned six semester hours of coursework earned at a regionally accredited college or university and apply by having the Louisiana employing school system submit a completed Certification Update Packet along with official transcripts & appropriate certification fee.

Teachers with multiple certification areas may complete coursework specific to any of their Certification areas. Coursework must be reflected on an official transcript from a regionally accredited institution.

Coursework must be gained within the five-year period immediately preceding reinstatement of the certificate. Coursework cannot be a repeat of prior coursework shown on a transcript, unless the student failed or earned a ā€œ Dā€ in the course.

[All TPAI courses are at graduate level.]
