The Regents Alternative Pathway to Iowa Licensure (RAPIL)—Answering the Call to Teach—is a collaborative effort among all three of Iowa’s Regents institutions to bring quality teacher preparation to eligible adult learners holding a BA degree.
RAPIL is designed to bring together the best of all three Regents institutions to create one teacher license program that is offered in a collaborative, technology-based teaching format for professionals who have life and career experiences to bring to today’s secondary students.
A collaborative program allows each institution to contribute essential resources that allow intern candidates to learn in a synchronous online and face-to-face environment outside of the typical on-campus, day-class format.
Interns who successfully complete this state-approved program will be recommended to the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners for the second year of the two-year Iowa Initial Teaching License. Hear the testimonials from past RAPIL interns:
