Teacher Preparation Program

A teacher candidate must put forward a formal application for admission to the Teacher Preparation Program (TPP) if they are working toward licensure in any Education major. Admission to the TPP is a prerequisite for most 300 or 400 level Education methods courses. A teacher candidate will not be able to register for methods classes that require admission to the TPP until being formally admitted, so it is important to start this process early.

TPP applications will not be accepted after August 1st for fall consideration. Any applications submitted after August 1st will be considered for admission for the following spring term.
