Many of the teaching authorizations have specific coursework that needs to be completed as part of the LACC. This is especially important Language Arts, Health/PE and Social Science. Students should check with a WOU advisor early on to make sure course work is completed.

Applicants who plan to start WOU’s Education Professional Core by the end of their junior year will be required to have taken two exams: NES-Elementary Education Subtest 2 (Middle/High Authorization) and ORELA-NES Content Test (Middle/High and High Only Authorizations) www.orela.nesinc.com

While a 2.75 minimum GPA is required for entrance to the Education Professional Core, students are encouraged to strive for a higher GPA to be competitive.

 

PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and time lines.
