Teacher Preparation Program

A teacher candidate must put forward a formal application for admission to the Teacher Preparation Program (TPP) if they are pursuing an Education major leading to licensure. Admission to the TPP is a prerequisite for most upper division (300 and above) Education methods courses.

Once a teacher candidate has met all Criteria for Admission, they will start an application. 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 as soon as criteria is met, which is typically one to two semesters prior to enrolling in methods courses.  

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.
