Teaching Licensure

Students preparing to teach in public schools should refer to the College of Arts & Sciences Education section. In addition to the requirements of a College of Arts & Sciences major, students must meet requirements for teacher licensure. To be considered for admission to a teacher licensure sequence, students must achieve a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.6 and a passing entry-level score on a School of Education Literacy Test or have the approval of the dean of the School of Education. These requirements must be met before a student may register for the upper-level prepracticum and practicum courses. Contact Director of Student Services Jacqueline Boyle in Room 243 at the School of Education for an appointment to discuss options and to receive an application. Application should be made no later than the beginning of the second semester of the sophomore year.
