In order to participate in any field-based course in the teaching licensure
programs, students must pass a State and Federal background check through
the Utah State of Education. Students must initiate the background check and
complete the fingerprinting process no later than Friday of the first week of the
semester. Failure to do so may jeopardize your ability to complete course
requirements and receive a grade in this course. More information>>

The PRAXIS test series is a set of validated assessments that provides information for use by state education agencies in making licensing decisions. PRAXIS exams are required in Utah, and in most other states, for teacher licensure. Each state selects its own tests within the PRAXIS series and sets its own minimum score requirements for specific licensure endorsements. An updated list of the tests for which Utah has set a minimum score is provided on the ETS website.More information>>

In addition to being admitted to the University of Utah, students interested in Elementary Education and/or Secondary Education must apply to the UITE and be accepted into one of the Licensure programs. Make sure to consult the application checklists below for application deadlines and step-by-step admission instructions. All Licensure students must also have a current cleared background check with the USBE. Admissions page >>
