Office Availability

The Teacher Certification Program is located in Black Hall 228. The two staff members maintain records for over 1000 active students in a given quarter and work very hard to communicate often and early when students are missing requirements. We track and update any non course related requirements to ensure you are ready for certification after graduation.
