 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.  
 
DPI has also identified a new mimimum score for students who took the ACT Plus Writing exam. Previously, DPI did not make a distinction between students who took the regular ACT test and the ACT Plus Writing test.
 
 
Students who do not meet this requirement are still required to pass the Praxis CORE test prior to applying to the Professional Education Program.
 
 

 Secondary Math Education: Changes to Admission Requirements

The updated application requirements for math education can be found online here​.
