Add-on Licensure in Elementary Science
Candidates in the elementary science add-on licensure program will meet standards and competencies through successful completion of five science education courses (15 credit hours). Candidates will receive a K-6 add-on licensure in science as approved by the North Carolina State Board of Education. All courses are online.
Successful completion of this program culminates in a license, not a degree.

Minimum Program Requirements
- Applicants should hold an elementary teaching license and completed at least two years of teaching.
The U.S. Department of Education requires that all higher education institutions advise students as to whether their curriculum provides them with the eligibility to apply for a professional license and/or certification in the state for which they plan to practice.
As such, please review UNC Greensboro’s status by state for the K-12 Reading Education program. You should note whether the program either “meets”, “does not meet”, or if there “has not been a determination” of the program’s status in the state for which you plan to practice. You should contact the program’s support staff at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding this data.
