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.
