Alternative Teaching Certificate

Highly qualified candidates with either a BA or a BS degrees can use the TELL program as part of an alternative path to teacher certification. The Utah State Office of Education has approved this alternative certification plan. Candidates who are currently employed or working in a school setting can take the six video-anchored TELL courses and the appropriate number of teaching methods courses required for elementary or secondary certification. Candidates who want to teach on the secondary level must have an appropriate major for the content area in which they wish to teach.
