Enrollment

Formally enrolling in a CES Licensure Program or Pathway connects you to a small-school learning environment and knowledgeable professionals, experienced in their fields and skilled in facilitating outstanding professional development.

 

 

Application Process

If you are planning to enroll, you must do so prior to taking your third course. CES Licensure staff are available to help walk you through the licensure process from start to finish. All applicants must provide their Massachusetts Education Personnel Identifier (MEPID) with their enrollment application. For more information about what a MEPID is and how to get one, go to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s MEPID webpage.
