Post Baccalaureate Licensure Only (TLP-Teacher Licensure Program)

  • Applications for spring 2015 TLP admission are due by December 1, 2014. (We do not accept TLP applications during the summer months as staff is not available to review.) Our post-baccalaureate licensure-only program is designed for graduates who have earned a bachelor's degree and wish to pursue careers as educators. These licensure programs require a completed bachelor's degree with an appropriate arts and sciences major. They include most of the subject matter and all of the education courses required in the regular undergraduate programs, including a student teaching practicum. 
  • If you are interested in the TLP program and want to learn more about it, you are encouraged to attend one of the information sessions held every semester. Our next information session is scheduled for Thursday, October 9, 2014 in Sullivan Building Room 303 at 4 pm
