Admission to Teacher Education

The following process must be completed prior to enrolling in any teacher education course:

  • Students will need to be admitted to Teacher Education (TED).

  • Undergraduate students are encouraged to make an appointment with a COE advisor to complete the Teacher Education Application. Post-Baccalaureate students should contact their program for information on applying to Teacher Education.

  • Teacher Education Applications may be downloaded online:

TED Form for Interdisciplinary Studies Students (Grades EC-6 or 4-8th)
TED Form for All Level and Secondary Education Students
TED Form for TNT Students - Please contact the TNT Advisor

Students applying to Teacher Education are required to complete the admission questionnaire on the College of Education’s TK20 website. For directions on how to complete the admission questionnaire online, please click here. TNT students, EC-12 Music Education Students, and EC-12 Art Education students have program-specific requirements that exempt them from this admission questionnaire.

Please contact the Student Advising Office to determine the current appropriate scores on the Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators Exams (Reading - 5712, Mathematics - 5732, Writing - 5722), or SAT, or ACT Test for the purposes of Teacher Education Admission.

Applications will be processed within 7 - 10 business days of submission to the Student Advising Office in Matthews Hall Room 105. Students who meet admission requirements will receive a formal offer of admission through their UNT email. This offer must be accepted within 72 hours to complete the admission process. 

Once students have been admitted into Teacher Education, they are eligible to register for teacher education courses. Please call the Student Advising Office at 940-565-2736 if you get a message stating that you are blocked when trying to register for education courses.
