Admission to the Teacher Licensure Program
Requirements for admission into the physical education teacher licensure program include the college-wide admission requirements as outlined in the Catalog and a minimum combined score of at least 1100 on the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing, and Math portions of the SAT.
Those not offered admission into the physical education program upon entrance to Endicott may change into the program when they (1) pass the Communication and Literacy MTEL exam, (2) maintain a minimum GPA of 2.5, and (3) achieve at least a C+ (77%) in all physical education courses. Because of the curriculum requirements, individuals interested in changing into the program from another major should work closely with their advisors and the dean of sport science and fitness to ensure that they are completing requirements in a timely manner.
Continuation in the Teacher Licensure Program
To continue in the physical education teacher licensure program, students must achieve a “C+” (77) or better in all physical education courses. Students must also have a 2.5 GPA at the beginning of their junior year to be promoted. In addition, students are required to pass the MTEL Communication and Literacy Examination to be eligible to register for the junior year of coursework and to pass the MTEL Physical Education Examination to be eligible to register for student teaching.
Transferring into the Teacher Licensure Program
(from another physical education program)
Transfer students from another college or university must present a course description of each physical education course taken and a transcript from the previous program for evaluation by the Physical Education Curriculum Committee. A grade of C+ or better is required for transfer credit to be considered for all physical education courses and science courses.
