Initial Teacher Certification for Post-Baccalaureates

If you have already earned a bachelor degree—or higher—and you are interested in obtaining teacher certification, application information is available on the College of Education and Human Development website.

You should apply a minimum of six months prior to the semester you plan to enroll (e.g., apply in January for fall) to ensure the availability of classes. The priority application deadlines are August 1 for fall semester and December 1 for spring semester. After these dates, the Office of Admissions will work with students who complete their application files in time to enroll for the requested term. In some cases admission may need to be deferred to a subsequent term.
