Dordt’s program is approved by the Iowa Department of Education. Graduates are eligible for Iowa licensure, which is highly respected and can lead to licensure in a state or province. (Some states have a few additional requirements you can meet while teaching.)

In the last five years, Dordt education graduates found teaching positions in 48 states, most Canadian provinces, and 26 foreign countries. Karen Beyers, administrator at Grace Christian School in Anchorage, Alaska, wrote of one Dordt graduate: "This teacher is deeply committed to excellence, eager to learn, open to suggestions, understands Christian philosophy, is humble, has a godly heart, and learns from his mistakes. You are doing a great job at Dordt."
