Application Materials

The Admissions Deadline for students planning to complete their licensure year during the 2024-2025 academic year is February 1, 2024!

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. Please see background check requirements below.

All students should ensure that they have completed one full semester at the University of Utah prior to applying to the UITE Licensure Programs. Applicants without the full semester of coursework at the University of Utah will not be reviewed. Completion of EDU 1010 is strongly recommended prior to applying. The Admissions Committee takes all supporting evidence into consideration when considering candidate applications. A cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above is recommended for admissions.
