TED Program Admission

In addition to declaring an education major, students must work toward Teacher Education Program Admission. Program admission is required prior to enrolling in the majority of upper-level Teacher Education classes and for a number of scholarship opportunities. The admissions process helps to ensure that students have the foundation necessary to complete major coursework and engage in field experiences. Students are encouraged to begin working toward program admission early in their academic career.

Admission Requirements:

  • Completion of TED 200 with a B- or better. TED 200 has several prerequisites:
    • WRIT 101
    • WRIT 102
    • COMM 110
    • HHP 102
    • MATH/CSU as required for major
    • Passing scores for Praxis I: PPST tests
    • Submission of a criminal background check
    • Submission of a negative TB test reading
  • Application for Admission - students must meet the following requirements:
    • Minimum of 9 semester credits completed at UW-Superior
    • Minimum of 40 credits of collegiate level work
    • 3.00 minimum GPA
    • Evidence of 20 hours of work with children
    • E-portfolio entries submitted and approved
    • Expository essay
    • Personal Narrative essay
    • Verification of oral communication skills
    • TED 200 grade of B- or better

Many of these requirements are completed as a part of TED 200; students who transfer in credit for TED 200 must work with the TED Program Coordinator to complete the admissions process. For more information, please reference the TED 200 Prerequisite Checklist and the Application for Admission.
