Application due date is February 15, 2017

  • A minimum of 3.0 out of a 4.0 unweighted grading scale is required.
  • The graduating senior must be enrolling in a college or university in education or education-related degree program, which requires certification from a State Board of Education.
  • A transcript with a minimum of 7 semester high school grades must accompany the application.

Most schools have not quite finished their semester grading as of yet. We do require that in order to submit the application, the student must upload their transcript with at least 7 semesters of high school grades.  Many students get excited and submit without all grades being reflected.  Any assistance the board might be able to help in emphasizing the applicant submit a valid transcript would be most appreciated.
