Applying to Teacher Education Programs

Admission to Teacher Education is required for all undergraduate students seeking teacher certification. Admission requirements include minimum THEA/TASP/ACCUPLACER score and minimum credit hour requirements, as well as GPA and specific grade requirements for entrance to the program. Applicants should receive early advisement and follow application and degree plan requirements closely.

Application takes place during the Sophomore/Junior year if all requirements specified on the application have been completed. Please see the application for a list of all requirements.

ALL APPLICANTS must meet current admission requirements in effect at the time of application, regardless of catalog year. Applicants previously denied admission must reapply with all required documents, including a new payment receipt.
