RALC

There are four Regional Alternative Licensing Centers (RALCs) in North Carolina, created by the NC State Board of Education and the Department of Public Instruction. The centers evaluate lateral entry and provisionally licensed teachers’ applications, prescribe courses of study, and outline other requirements needed in order to receive full professional educators’ licenses. Upon completion of individuals’ plans of study, the RALC will make recommendation to the Licensure Section at DPI for clear licenses.
