Montana Board of Public Education Approved
Educator Preparation Programs (EPP)



The Administrative Rules of Montana (ARM) Title 10, Chapter 58 Professional Educator Preparation Program Standards (PEPPS) directs the accreditation of educator preparation programs (EPP) in Montana. There are ten post-secondary campuses offering EPPs in Montana, and each is approved by the Montana State Board of Public Education (BPE) to provide EPPs leading to licensure for teachers and administrators. Each EPP offers its own combination of programs.

Per SB 373, an alternative teacher certification and endorsement program has been approved. The BPE approved the first program in March 2024.
