What is the RALC?

There are four Regional Alternative Licensing Centers (RALCs) in North Carolina, created by the State Board of Education and the Department of Public Instruction. They were designed to assist lateral entry teachers in NC to achieve a full professional educator’s license. read more...>

Course Disclaimer

Courses listed on the RALC website are approved for employed and prospective teachers who have a current plan of study or qualification letter on file with one of the four RALCs. Individuals with an expired or no plan of study should not take these courses and assume they will count.

Restricted Licensure

Teachers licensed through the CTE provisional route are issued a restricted license, which means employment is limited to the specific area of licensure. Teachers with a restricted license are not eligible to add additional license areas based on testing or 24 semester hours of course work unless otherwise permitted by policy. Previously granted non-teaching work experience may not be transferable to other license areas for which the experience is not relevant.
