Have you found the programs you like? It’s time to apply! Don’t worry: We’re always here if you need a boost.

Before you apply

Every program is different, but the one you apply to should be Colorado state-approved and offer preparation in the subject and grade you want to teach. Choose a program that offers an extended practicum, internship or clinical experience to fulfill Colorado state licensure requirements.

It’s go time

Your application is a one-stop-shop for admissions officers to review your fit for their program. At the end of the day, your application joins many others, so remember to make your admissions essay stand out: Consider your audience, mention relevant background and include personal experience.

Take the stress out of applying—talk to an expert.
