Education SAPE: Post-Baccalaureate, Non-Degree Teacher Certification

Programs

Armstrong currently offers two post-baccalaureate, non-degree teaching certificate programs. In addition to the general requirements below, please visit the links below for details specific to each program.

Coursework consists of professional education classes, specialized courses regarding school environments, specialized content courses and an internship. A full-time, semester-long, field-based graduate internship is under the tutelage of a university supervisor. This internship cannot begin until all other required courses have been completed.

Most courses are offered face-to-face at night and some courses are available online.  Not all courses are offered every semester.  For example, the internship is offered only during the fall and spring semesters and during the day – when schools are in session.  (Please check the Class Schedule Listing on the Armstrong Web site to see course information for the upcoming semester.) 

Academic Requirements

Before applying for admission to the post-baccalaureate program, individuals should determine if they are eligible or can become eligible by examining the following minimum academic and test score requirements:

The above are minimum academic, test score or professional requirements only. Read the entire application checklist to determine what documents must be included in your submission. Anyone who does not meet admissions requirements can apply as a non-degree-seeking student and take four designated courses (EDUC 6000, EDUC 6100, EDUC 6200 and EDUC 6300). The Graduate Admissions Coordinator can direct you in this process.

*Note: PSC-accepted accredited institutions are those that are accredited by accrediting organizations recognized by either the U.S. Department of Education or The Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

**Note:  A transcript analysis will be performed to determine if the academic preparation requirement is satisfied or if additional undergraduate coursework is needed prior to admission to the certificate program.
