Teacher Education at Bluefield State College is a restricted enrollment program. The College recognizes two levels of status in teacher preparation:

A Declaration of Intent to pursue Teacher Education is attained when the student declares his/her major in education and identifies the field(s) of specialization. Intent may be declared at any time.

Admission to Teacher Education will be attained when:

  1. The student passes the Preprofessional Skills Tests in Reading Writing, and Mathematics.
  2. The student has completed a minimum of 24 semester hours with a grade point average of 2.75 or better. The Director of Teacher Education may make exceptions if the student has a GPA of at least 2.70 and has met all other requirements.
  3. The student has successfully completed two (2) semester hours in Education (Education 110 Foundations of Education). Only Education 110, 160 200, and 280 of the professional education sequence, READ 270, and SPED 310 and 311 may be taken before admission to Teacher Education.

Students must take and successfully pass the reading, writing, and math parts of the Praxis I and have those scores reported to Bluefield State College Department of Education.
