This program is designed for those students who already hold a baccalaureate degree and wish to pursue a career in teaching.

TEEL students must meet the licensure requirements as outlined for their licensure area. The admissions process follows:

  1. Complete the application to Notre Dame College.
  2. Complete the application to the Division of Professional Education.
  3. The candidate will participate in an interview with the Admissions Office or his/her designee. This interview includes a discussion of the various initial licensure programs, schedule of classes, and financial aid.
  4. After acceptance, the Finn Center will review transcripts for potential transfer credits. No courses in which the candidate earned a grade of C+ or below will be accepted.
  5. Acceptance to any TEEL program is made with a 2.75 GPA. 115 a. If the GPA is between 2.5 and 2.75, SAT and ACT scores may be used for admission. A total SAT score of 1080, or a composite ACT score of 18 are acceptable scores for admission to an educator preparation program. Candidates may also be given an Action Plan that will allow for them to have two semesters bring up their GPA’s to 2.75. If, at the end of those two semesters, candidates have not increased their GPA’s to 2.75, they may be counseled out of the education licensure program. 
  6. All candidates must have access to a computer, an active NDC email account, Microsoft Office software, and a TK20 subscription.
