What to Look For

The schools listed on this site all have separate admissions requirements, and offer many different types of programs and program specializations. You should make sure to contact multiple schools, so you can compare their requirements, offerings, cost, and so on.

Some of the key things to ask the schools about include:

1. Tuition (of course...).

2. Certification - you should make sure to find out whether the program qualifies you to receive teacher certification from the state Department of Education. If it's a graduate program, it may also have certain certification-related admission requirements.

3. Residency requirements - especially if you're looking for a post-Bachelors program (Masters, Doctorate, Post-Baccalaureate, Alternative Certification, etc.). Check out our "Online Programs" page (link in the menu bar above) for more detail, but the short version is that graduate programs vary widely as far as how often they require you to come to campus, and for how long.

Again, all of these requirements vary by school, so you will need to speak directly with each school to understand their exact requirements and what you may need to do to prepare.
