Admission to the Concentration

A student who seeks admission to the Spanish with K–12 Teaching Licensure concentration is expected to achieve:

  1. A minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.75 overall and in the major
  2. Completion of all courses needed to fulfill the General Education Requirements; and
  3. Satisfactory scores on the Praxis I (ACT or SAT—See Praxis I Substitution Table for ACT, SAT, and Praxis I).

Students interested in the K–12 Teaching Licensure major must consult the Director of Undergraduate Studies in Languages, Literatures, and Cultures for early discussion of all requirements as well as our K–12 advisor. Additionally, students must request Admission to the Teacher Education Program from the School of Education Office of Student Services. Candidates should apply for admission to the School of Education Office of Student Services at the end of their sophomore year and be admitted no later than the first semester of their junior year. Please review requirements on their Web page. Consult the Teacher Education Handbook for details.

Admisison to Student Teaching

During the junior year, students already admitted to the Teacher Education Program must apply for admission to Student Teaching. Admission includes:

  1. Completion of requirements specific to the major
  2. Eligibility to enter student teaching requires maintaining an overall GPA of 3.0 or better after being admitted to the major, and achieving a grade of C or better in each professional course. After admission to the major, if a student fails to maintain an overall GPA of 3.0, the student has one semester to improve his or her grade point average. If a student receives a C- or lower in a professional course, the student is eligible to retake the course at its next offering.

Application forms are available online from the Office of Student Services in the School of Education. Forms must be submitted by February 15 for student teaching in the spring of the following year. Student teaching assignments are usually made in schools within commuting distance of UNCG. Teacher education students are individually responsible for expenses incurred during student teaching, including transportation. NOTE: Student teaching is offered only in the spring semester.

Application for Teacher Licensure

An application for licensure should be filed with the School of Education Office of Student Services within two weeks of graduation. Students should be aware that the licensure process will take six weeks or longer after graduation to be completed. UNCG recommends for a teacher’s licensure those students who have completed the appropriate teacher education curriculum, attained acceptable competencies, and whose work has been approved by the appropriate department.

Praxis II (subject-area exams) are no longer required by the state for students completing a degree program for their first license except in Elementary and Special Education. (Lateral entry teachers are required to take the Praxis II.) To be licensed in North Carolina, students must meet the specific state requirements for licensure, including demonstration of technology competencies.
