Resources and Guidelines

Admission to the Teacher Preparation program at VCU is a separate application process from admission to the undergraduate programs or admission to the graduate school.

The Teacher Preparation application for licensure in Virginia requires a variety of pre-requisite courses and tests, in-classroom experiential learning and hour requirements. The Teacher Prep program at VCU is a separate application process from your undergraduate B.S.Ed. or graduate Master of Teaching (M.T.) or Masters of Education (M.Ed.) in special education or counseling concentrations.

There are many different pieces to the prerequisite course requirements that are determined based on a student’s past academic program and future licensure and graduate program interests. There are different testing requirements and in-classroom experiences that vary as well.
