Student teaching requirements for special education certification are determined at time of student teaching and based on previous certified teaching experience. 

Students have the option of taking licensure courses at the undergraduate or graduate level.  Ifi you have any questions about what level (e.g., 4000 or 5000) you should enroll, please see the program coordinator. 

Students may be required to take a literacy and a math course to be determined prior or during student teaching.

Important information is attached with details about applying for admission to UMD and the Special Education program.  Students must successfully complete the Pre-Professional Skills Test (PPST), have an overall GPA of 2.7 and meet the other requirements for admission to the program.

A signed post-baccalaureate contract does not guarantee admission to the program that offers the licensure you are seeking.   To be valid, you must begin coursework within two years of the date the contract was signed by the licensure officer.  CEHSP reserves the right to modify this contract as University courses are changed or Minnesota Board of Teaching licensure requirements are revised.
