CWUP 5-50-080 Teacher Certification Programs

The Teacher Certification Program is administered through the college of education and professional studies (CEPS), the school of education (SOE), and the teacher education executive council (TEEC).  All programs leading to a teaching certificate and endorsements must meet current Washington State requirements.  Additionally, all teacher preparation majors and minors must conform to the credit requirements appropriate for the degree.  Programs leading to teaching certification require the successful completion of the Professional Education Program (PEP) in addition to the endorsement program.  Any course substitution or alternative program to the PEP must be defined in a written formal agreement (Memorandum of Understanding) and approved by the curriculum, supervision and education leadership department (CSEL), TEEC, the executive director of the school of education, and the dean of CEPS.  To ensure the quality and integrity of the certification process, all approved course substitutions and alternative programs must be reviewed and go through the school of education approval process every four years.
