Entrance Exams

One of several ways we measure your readiness for the Teacher Education Program (TEP) is your performance on any one of the qualifying entrance exams:

  • the CASA (Core Academic Skills Assessment),
  • the SAT,
  • the ACT,
  • or Praxis CORE.

You'll need to meet minimum score requirements and submit verification of your score to satisfactorily fulfill the TEP entrance exam requirement.

Entrance exams are not required for the following programs, Transition to Teaching (T2T), M.S. in Education & graduate certificates.
