The Office of Accreditation, Placement, and Licensure (OAPL) at The Ohio State University has a primary mission to help monitor and support the university's Educator Preparation Programs that lead to a PK-12 state license in teaching, administration, or pupil services.

Our office assists in collecting, organizing, and analyzing data about various key program elements such as: admissions, content, rubrics, student teaching experiences, field placements and candidate/intern performances. Through the monitoring of this data, the OAPL ensures that state, federal, and program-specific standards are met to maintain state and federal accreditation status.
