If you are seeking a bachelor’s degree, or if you have already completed a bachelor’s degree and are interested in taking undergraduate classes to earn teacher licensure (we call this post-baccalaureate teacher licensure), please review the steps for Undergraduate Programs.

If you have completed (or will soon complete) a bachelor’s degree and you are interested in joining one of our master’s degree or graduate certificate programs, please review the steps for Graduate Programs.
