Subject Area Testing:
If you hold a clear teaching license with no restrictions, you can add an area to your license by taking and passing the Praxis II Test or Pearson Test for North Carolina: Foundations of Reading and General Curriculum (effective October 1, 2014) for that area, or, by completing a state approved teacher education program that leads to licensure, or by completing 24 hours in the subject area with a grade of C or better. If you hold a professional educator’s student services license, you must complete the teacher education program to add a teaching area to your existing license.
