Transition to Teaching

Purdue University offers Secondary Transition to Teaching (TTT) programs, each with minimum requirements. Certain standards and admission requirements may be necessary prior to acceptance into the program. Transition to Teaching (TTT) is based on the premise that a candidate already has the subject matter, knowledge and skills, and meets content standards. Program participants also will need to meet Indiana requirements for licensing.

(1) A bachelor's degree or the equivalent with a grade point average of at least three (3.0) on a four (4.0) point scale from an accredited postsecondary educational institution in the subject area that the individual intends to teach. (Coursework may not be taken or repeated after earning the degree in order to raise the overall GPA.)

(2) A graduate degree from an accredited postsecondary educational institution in the subject area or a related field that the individual intends to teach.
