 ACT Scores for Admission to Professional Education Program


Rules regarding acceptable ACT scores for admission to the Professional Education Program have changed.

The Department of Public Instruction is now allowing us to accept ACT scores that are 10 years old or less, instead of the previous rule of 5 years old or less, as long as you meet the additional requirements to apply to the Program.   
Students who do not meet this requirement are still required to pass the Praxis CORE test prior to applying to the Professional Education Program.
  • Passing scores are obtained within 10 years of applying to the Professional Education Program (not UW-Stevens Point) and ACT required scores: Composite score of 23 with minimum scores of 20 on each section of English, Math & Reading.
