Transition to Teaching
Purdue University offers the Elementary and 13 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, content knowledge and skills, and meets content standards. Program participants also will need to meet Indiana standards for licensing.
In order to be eligible to participate in an Elementary or Secondary TTT Program, a person must meet one of the following entrance qualifications:
(A) A bachelor's or the equivalent with a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale at the time of graduation from an accredited institution of higher education in a related subject area that the person intends to teach. (Coursework may not be taken or repeated after earning the degree in order to raise the overall GPA.)
(B) Both: A bachelor's or higher degree from an accredited institution of higher education with a grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 point scale; and five years of professional experience in an education-related field or in the subject area that the person intends to teach.
The TTT licensure route requires the completion of a transcript evaluation. The above-listed GPA requirements must be satisfied in order to have the transcript evaluation completed. The link for the Transcript Evaluation Request Form is located on the right side of this page.
