Admission to the TE program is a distinct and unique admission process, separate from admission to WCU
Apply and be officially admitted to the teacher education (TE) program in addition to the University.
Acceptance and registration in a department does not guarantee admission to the teacher education program in that department.
Applicants who already hold a non-teaching four year degree must meet admission requirements except that they are not required to take the PPST-Praxis I.
The same criteria for admission apply to both transfer students and four year undergraduate students.
You should apply after all admission requirements have been met, usually at the end of the semester you are enrolled in EDCI 201 or BK 250
Applications should be submitted to Rachel Wike in the the College of Education and Allied Professions, Killian Building.
If admission requirements are not completed by the end of the semester you are enrolled in EDCI 201 or BK 250, it is recommended that these requirements be met before 75 semester hours have been completed.
The on-line Teacher Education Handbook and Program Information at tehandbook.wcu.edu
is an introduction to our college and a valuable resource to be used in conjunction with the University Catalog and regular communication with your advisor.
Refer to the handbook and program information for instructions for completing the admission requirements and application process, as well as information about state Praxis testing requirements and exemptions, early field experiences, and student teaching/internship II.
You should register for tests during the semester you are enrolled in EDCI 201 or BK 250
If you already hold a four year degree and are seeking a second degree or alternative license-only certification, you are not required to take Praxis I.
Background Checks

Rachel Wike,
Coordinator of Education Admissions
The applicant’s fitness for teaching in the chosen area is determined on the basis of demonstrated academic ability and other personal dispositions conducive to effective teaching. A student may be considered suitable in one area and unsuitable in another. Students with speech defects that will interfere with successful teaching may be required to undergo corrective therapy.
Students need to be aware that the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (DPI) conducts background checks for felony convictions before a license is issued. If you have questions please contact the College of Education and Allied Professions Associate Dean, Killian Building, Suite 206.

Additional information can be found via TaskStream each time you apply for a field experience.
