District Administrator Licensure

The District Administrator licensure program is a 21-credit program that leads to certification for the Superintendency license in the state of Wisconsin.


This 21-credit program can be completed in 14 months and is delivered in an accelerated, cohort model format. Classes are offered one or two weekends per month at our City Center site located in downtown Milwaukee.

Students must posses a master's degree from an accredited school, have three years of administrative experience in K-12 schools, as well as hold a current administrative license (Director of Instruction, Principal, Business Manager, or Director of Pupil Services). Courses in this program can transfer directly into the doctoral programs at Cardinal Stritch University. Candidates must, however, apply separately to the Doctorate in Leadership for the Advancement of Learning and Service or the Doctorate in Leadership for the Advancement of Learning and Service in Higher Education.
