To be eligible for this program, applicants must have:
Step 1: Review the programs and decide which program you are interested in. Identify your program area of interest to the Teacher Preparation and Advising Office when you move to Step 2 for pre-admission transcript evaluation.
Step 2: Prior to admission, a transcript evaluation completed by the Teacher Preparation and Advising Office will determine how much content area course work is necessary prior to entering the sequence of courses for the Graduate Certificate program. In order to allow sufficient time for completion of any identified prerequisites, it is best to begin this process as early as possible understanding that it can take 2-3 semesters to complete the prerequisites depending on the credits you have and the program you choose. See the transcript evaluation page for more information.
Step 3: Meet with an advisor if you have questions. Call the Teacher Preparation and Advising Office (307-766-2230) to schedule an appointment.
Step 4: Apply for admission to the University of Wyoming as a Second Bachelor's Degree student in the College of Education. Application for admission can be found on the Admissions website.
Step 5: Receive advising to complete your Education prerequisites and remaining elementary or secondary content. Call the Teacher Preparation and Advising Office (307-766-2230) to schedule an appointment.
Step 6: Graduate Certificate students should apply for Phase III: Methods and Residency by the 1st week of December to enter the program in the following May (summer semester). Late applications will be considered, but options for Residency (student teaching) placement locations will be extremely limited.
Step 7: Upon notification of provisional acceptance into Phase III of the Wyoming Teacher Education Program, Second Bachelor’s students will receive written instructions for applying to the Graduate Certificate in Teaching Elementary School (TES) or the Graduate Certificate in Teaching Secondary Content (TSC), as appropriate. Once your student status has been changed to that of a Graduate Certificate student, you will be charged graduate tuition for all of your UW course credits, beginning with the required summer courses.
