  1. Provide Official Transcripts from ALL institutions of higher education. The transcripts must provide: Proof of baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution. If the degree was received from SUU, a copy of the transcript is NOT required. Official transcripts must bear the institution's seal, Registrar's signature, and may not be faxed or copied.  Official electronic transcripts are preferred when possible.
  2. GPA 3.00 or higher calculated on the last 60 semester/90 quarter hours of approved undergraduate/graduate coursework (not including pass/fail courses).
  3. All applicants must participate in a program orientation/admission screening. There is only one orientation available to attend for each admission semester.
  4. Two full years of paid teaching experience is required.
  5. A copy of the applicant's current, valid teaching license (Level 1 in Utah) or equivalent (a Level C conditional license is not acceptable, nor is a temporary license). Applicants from Utah may submit the credential and assignment page from CACTUS for verification. Valid teaching licenses from other states and/or countries may also be considered. Student teaching/practicum or internship experiences do not meet this criterion. This information may be submitted by fax to (435) 865- 8485.
  6. Two letters of recommendation from the current or immediate past school principal and administrator/supervisor. When completing an online application, an e-mail address for the reference is required. A recommendation form will be generated and emailed to those references. It is the applicant's responsibility to verify that SUU has received the information from your references.
