Educational Leadership (P-12 Tier Two) Non-Degree Certification

Pursue your tier two certification

Mercer University’s Tier Two Educational Leadership certification program prepares transformational leaders outside of the classroom. Mercer offers a non-degree, certification-only option to prepare students for Tier Two Educational Leadership Certification (Level 6) eligibility in Georgia. Students learn to further leadership skills and attain professional growth in the field of education.

To be eligible for the non-degree, Tier Two initial certification program, applicants must hold a valid Level 6 educator certificate and Level 5 Leadership certification. The number of courses needed for the certification-only option are dependent upon a transcript review, which can be completed prior to the application process.

Designed for busy and working adults

The Tier Two Educational Leadership program is offered at Mercer’s Atlanta, Henry County, and Macon locations. All program coursework is delivered in a flexible, blended format which combines on-campus meetings with on-site clinical practice hours. Students are enrolled three times per year in August, January, and May, which provides students the flexibility and convenience to continue working while earning their degree at their pace.

This program requires a minimum enrollment for each location and start date to begin a cohort.
