*Please note: Consult with your academic advisor before enrolling.*

*KU’s licensure programs strive to maintain accurate and up-to-date information about the educational requirements for licensure in U.S. states and territories. However, regulations are subject to change and varying interpretations. In addition to possible changes in educational requirements, licensure often includes additional requirements, such as specific examinations and additional training or practicum hours. It is highly recommended that students seek guidance from the appropriate licensing agency before beginning an academic program to ensure they know what is needed to obtain the license/certification/registration in the state in which they intend to practice and/or seek licensure.*

## Other Requirements

- 2.75 KU + Transfer Cumulative GPA
- 2.5 Content GPA
- This program is designed to be completed along with an approved BS or BA degree to fulfill the requirements necessary for the STEMTeach KU Certificate in your desired area of licensure. The program is also designed to fulfill the course requirements necessary to gain state licensure eligibility in the above mentioned areas of licensure to become a secondary teacher in Kansas, but completion of the program does not guarantee the student’s licensure. Please consult with your major advisor for further information about meeting your degree/major requirements.
