Teacher Testing and Certification Information

Testing for Admission to Undergraduate Programs

Passing scores earned prior to 9/1/13 on the ETS Praxis will be honored. Pearson's CASA (CORE Academic Skills Assessment) test is required for admittance into the School of Education. There are other state-approved alternatives, including certain SAT, ACT, and GRE scores--see your advisor for details (contact info below).

One may cancel testing appointments and registration; if done at least 24 hours prior to the testing appointment, a full refund is made by Pearson.
