Join us for Fall Open House - Oct. 15 and Nov. 18
This event will feature programming for our undergraduate, graduate, and Threshold programs. A vibrant campus community and access to endless opportunities—Lesley has it all. It's where student cohorts become lifelong catalysts, solving for today's complexities with full hearts and open minds.

Our Massachusetts Tests for Educator Licensure (MTEL) workshops and courses cover practice questions, test-taking strategies, some content, and resources for individual study to Lesley students and alumni, current Lesley applicants, and the general public, usually 3 times per year.

All workshops will be held remotely. Most workshops will be synchronous, meaning you must attend during the specified hours. The English as a Second Language workshop is asynchronous.

See below for how to register for a workshop.

How to Register

Using the Elevate System for Course Registration

Elevate is an online registration system used for continuing education and other services. Even if you have taken courses at Lesley previously, you will need to create a new account for Elevate, which you can use for future courses offered through this system. 

Each course has a unique registration code. Make sure your correct course/start date is listed on the upper right-hand corner of the “Create Account” sign-in page. After entering your information, the system will prompt you for payment, if appropriate.

Once registered, you will receive two emails: one from with your Elevate username and portal link; one from the Registrar’s Office with your Lesley credentials for Blackboard/myLesley and Self-Service. If you do not receive an email within two business days regarding your Lesley credentials, please contact our IT department at 617.349.8770 or

Workshop confirmations, cancellations, and/or changes will be made through email. Make sure your email address is current, correct, and legible, and check your email before departing for the workshops.
