Content Evaluation for Entrance to the Post-Baccalaureate or Master of Arts in Teaching Programs

To be admitted to the Post-Baccalaureate or Master of Arts in Teaching programs, candidates for admission must submit an official transcript with a baccalaureate degree posted to the transcript. The baccalaureate degree must be from a regionally accredited institution in the United States. In addition to degree verification, an evaluation of eligibility is conducted prior to admission to determine academic content background necessary for enrollment.


To be eligible to enroll in the Post-Baccalaureate or Master of Arts in Teaching program, candidates must meet the appropriate content requirements (see PDF documents listed to the right of this article). If the candidate fails to meet the appropriate content requirements, the candidate may only seek to complete a second baccalaureate, pre-licensure program. No academic program changes to the Post-Baccalaureate or Master of Arts in Teaching are allowed under any circumstances.
