Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees and Programs

Admission requirements for post-baccalaureate candidates seeking K-12 licensure include evidence of having a conferred Bachelor’s degree in the licensure subject area, and meeting the criteria for formal admission. Upon application to the Teacher Education Program, an official transcript from the accredited colleges where the candidate attended, including the one granting the baccalaureate degree, must be brought to the Teacher Application Center (West Classroom 136). The appropriate content area advisors will review the transcript for completed course work appropriate for the endorsement being sought. It may be necessary for a Post-Baccalaureate candidate to complete specified courses in the content area, in addition to the professional licensure sequence course work, as part of their approved teacher preparation program. Post-baccalaureate students should begin the licensure program by taking the first education courses in their licensure sequence and take the licensure content examination as soon as possible.

Coursework meeting K-12 teacher licensure standards for physical education is available through the Human Performance and Sport Department and the Teacher Education Department. Candidates seeking licensure only must have a previous bachelor’s degree in an area related to physical education. Physical education advisors will review the candidate’s transcript(s) to determine the courses in the content area and in physical education that must be completed by the candidate as part of their approved teacher preparation program.
