Alternative Delivery Schedule

The School of Education has developed an Alternative Delivery Schedule (ADS) for career changers who currently have a bachelor degree in a content area that is identified as a license area by the Indiana Department of Education.  This is an undergraduate licensure to prepare the student with the pedagogical skills needed for teaching.  The applicant must pass current state licensure exams (Praxis I or approved IDOE alternative and Praxis II content area).  The applicant must have completed an undergraduate degree from a regionally accredited institution with an acceptable GPA of 2.75 or higher based on a 4.0 scale in order to be admitted to the School of Education. 

Transcript Evaluation
All applicants to the Elementary Education and All Grade/Secondary Alternative Delivery Schedule (ADS) must have their transcripts reviewed by the licensure officer for any deficient classes in General Education and/or content area.  Applicants having more than 9 credit hours deficient will not be considered for the course of study unless approved by the OCU licensure officer.

Praxis
Evidence of Praxis I testing is required for admission.  Successful completion of Praxis I and Praxis II are required for Student Teaching.  A placement cannot be made if official scores for Praxis II are not received in the MAT Office by October 15, 2012.
