Petition for Admission Requirements Waiver

An admission requirements waiver, if approved, allows a teacher education candidate one (1) semester to enroll in post-admission courses without full admission to the teacher education program.

After this one semester, a candidate must have completed all admission requirements to enroll in other post-admission courses.

Do the following before submitting the petition to waive admission requirements:

  • Complete of the application for admission to the teacher education program.
  • Initiate the criminal history background check process.
  • Submit at least one attempt to earn passing score for the reading basic skills requirement.
  • Submit at least one attempt to earn passing score for the mathematics basic skills requirement.
  • Submit at least one attempt to earn passing score for the writing basic skills requirement.

NOTE:  Waivers are NOT approved for requirements that will be (or can be) completed this semester.

For example, if you are enrolled in a required foundation course this semester, your admission decision will be made once that course is completed.
