All initial licensure candidates must fulfill the following requirements:
- be accepted to the university; ACT admissions scores are presented to verify the strength of professional education candidates
- have an undergraduate GPA of 2.65 on the university required 44-hour core course work
- successfully complete the Basic Technology Literacy Exam (BTLE)
- successfully complete the Praxis I (PPST). Candidates with a composite score of 21 or higher on the ACT exam are exempt from the PPST as a prerequisite for the professional education program.
The student should note that teacher licensure requirements supersede program requirements. Mandated changes in program requirements will be communicated through the student's academic adviser.
