Requirements for Admission to the School of Education and Teacher Education Program

Admission to the SoE/TEP is a critical benchmark for teacher candidates. Until undergraduate students are admitted to the SoE/TEP, they do not have any official status in their programs or the school. The requirements candidates must meet include: earning a 2.5 minimum GPA at Indiana University; passing the PRAXIS I admission tests in reading, writing, and mathematics; completing or being enrolled in prerequisite courses; submitting an online application by October 1 for spring semester permission courses and March 1 for fall semester permission courses; and meeting any additional requirements specific to the program of interest. Once a student is admitted to the SoE/TEP, requirements are set and can only be changed in extreme cases.

Program Change: Admission to the SoE/TEP is now combined a single process.

  1. All new undergraduate students and transfer students admitted to Indiana University are assigned to the University Division until they are ready to be certified to one of the 13 undergraduate degree-granting colleges and schools that make up the university. Each college or school sets its own criteria for admission, program requirements, and graduation.
  2. Undergraduates may complete up to 65 credits in University Division before being required to be certified to a college or school. Transfer students have one calendar year to meet admission requirements. Students who fail to certify to the School of Education in a timely fashion will be required to choose another college or school. Students who have been denied admission to the SoE/TEP, but eventually meet the admission criteria, may apply for certification through a graduate certification program.
  3. Transfer credit policy: An unofficial transfer credit evaluation completed by anyone other than the Office of Admissions is not a contract; it is an estimate of whether your past course work and experiences meet current Indiana teaching license requirements. Individual faculty members and advisors do not have the authority to determine program substitutions.
