For admission, students must have an approved undergraduate degree with a 2.7 GPA; must pass the GACE Basic Skills/Program Admission Assessment; and must pass the GACE Content Assessment in their selected teaching field. No GRE required. There are field experiences required in select courses and one full semester of student teaching is required.
