Secondary and K-12 Programs
Prior to enrolling in PTEP courses (typically begun in fall of junior year), all secondary/K-12 students must be formally admitted to the Professional Teacher Education Program (PTEP).
Admission Requirements to the PTEP are as follows:
EDUC 210 Schools in a Diverse Society 3 EDUC 300 Development and Learning 3 CMAT 250 Instructional Communication 3 ENGL 101 Principles of Composition 3 ENGL 102 Principles of Literature 3
How transfer grades affect your overall GPA
Although your transfer grades do not affect your SU GPA, they are considered when you apply to the PTEP.
How much impact do transfer grades have on your PTEP eligibility?
If you transfer 45 credits with an overall GPA of 2.0, it will take 15 credits (1 semester) of A or 45 credits (3 semesters) of B to raise your overall GPA to 2.5
If you transfer 60 credits with an overall GPA of 2.0, it will take 20 credits (more than 1 semester) of A or 60 credits (2 years!) of B to raise your overall GPA to 2.5.
If you are a prospective transfer student with a major GPA below 2.75 or a cumulative GPA below 2.5, you will certainly spend some extra time taking courses to raise your GPA before entering the professional program.
It is to a transfer student's benefit to repeat courses at their transfer institution. Courses repeated at SU do not replace the transfer grade.
