UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
This graduate program is designed for individuals with an undergraduate degree in an area other than education who want to become certified to teach in an elementary or early childhood classroom.
Our program has been revised to meet the needs of our students and to align with the licensing requirements of the Wisconsin Department of Instruction (DPI). Students will complete requirements for their teaching license within two years and can choose to complete a master’s degree with one additional course.
The admissions process is designed so that those who enter and complete the program will obtain their license and be prepared for a career as a teacher. Individuals who complete the admissions process before July 1 will have priority for admission into the fall cohort. Later applicants may be admitted if space is available.
All candidates need to meet these admissions requirements:
Send all documents directly to the UWRF Graduate Admissions Office by mail or email. Transcripts must be sent to UWRF directly from your previously attended institution. Criminal background checks are performed on all admitted students.
