Steps to Teacher Certification


You can get started today by completing an online application in as little as 10 minutes. After you apply, you will receive a login to your student portal. From there you would submit the needed admission requirements to be accepted.


After acceptance, you will enroll in the program and complete the required courses and residency. You are not required to complete all the courses in order to be issued an Alternative Certification or begin the residency.


For all other content areas you will need to pass the appropriate AEPA/NES to be issued the Alternative Certification Probationary/Temporary License.


Once you have completed all program requirements including all coursework and residency, you will have completed your internship and your capstone for your Standard Certificate.
