Program Overview

Transition to Teaching



  • Candidates must have a four-year baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution of higher education with an overall GPA of 3.0, as well as a GPA of 3.0 in their major area of study. Candidates with a GPA of 2.5 may be accepted with five years of professional experience.
  • Passing scores from the following Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators tests (official score report must be submitted with application): 5713, 5723, 5733.
