To successfully complete the Early Childhood teacher education certification program, the teacher candidate must have the following:
- 2.5 GPA
- C or better on all education coursework
- Passing score on the GACE Content State Licensure Examination (Early Childhood: Test code 001 and Test Code 002)
Program exit begins when the teacher candidate applies for graduation and certification. In consultation with the candidate’s faculty advisor, the candidate completes and submits the Intent to Graduate Application. After the candidate applies for graduation, the Registrar’s Office conducts a graduation Degree Audit Report and certifies that the candidate has completed all requirements of the approved teacher education program, including passing the appropriate GACE Content State Licensure Examination.
The final step in the program exit process requires the teacher candidate to complete the Georgia PSC Certification Application and return it to the Coordinator of Field Experiences and Assessment.
