Mississippi Teacher Reciprocity Agreements

Mississippi offers a 5-year Reciprocity License to educators from out-of-state as well as a 2-year non-renewable Reciprocity License. The 5-year license requires applicants to hold a current, valid license from out-of-state as well as have completed required examinations similar to the examination requirements for teacher certification in Mississippi. The 2-year non-renewable license is issued to those who have not met the examination criteria required by the state of Mississippi. During the two-year span of this license, any deficiencies for full licensure must be fullfilled. For more information about the process of teacher certification, explore the Mississippi Department of Education website, or call 601-359-3631.
