4.- Post Baccalaureate Admission
An individual who has received a baccalaureate degree but who does not wish to apply for admission into a graduate degree program may apply for admission as a post-baccalaureate student. This type of admission is available to individuals who:
Interested individuals must complete the Application for Post-Baccalaureate Admission and must submit to the Graduate Student Services Office an official transcript with the baccalaureate degree posted. If several institutions were attended, an official transcript is required from each institution from which junior/senior, and any graduate level credit was earned. UTEP transcripts are not required of students who received their baccalaureate degree from UTEP.
Post-baccalaureate admission is not available to international students who need a student visa (I-20) to attend school in the United States unless approved by the International Programs Office.
Admission as a post-baccalaureate student does not constitute admission
into a graduate degree program of the Graduate School. An individual who
wishes to apply for admission into a graduate degree program must complete
the pplication for Admission into a Graduate Program and provide the
documents described under "Admission into a Graduate Program."
Initial teacher certification and professional certification for classroom teachers can also be earned. Eligibility for these programs includes a minimum 2.5 cumulative grade point average from an accredited college or university, successful completion of the TASP (Texas Academic Skills program), and development of an approved plan of study.
Eligible applicants for certification and endorsement programs will be notified that they may enroll as non-degree students but will need to contact the Certification Office in the College of Education immediately for eligibility into one of several certification or endorsement programs.
The Certification Office and the College of Education are responsible for course scheduling and may require a minimum enrollment per term for admitted students. This Office additionally will develop a plan of study for each student in keeping with the requirements set forth by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). The certification or endorsement will be earned upon successful completion of all requirements.
Graduate-level course work completed during the certification or endorsement program that has not been used to meet other degree requirements may be recommended by the departmental Graduate Advisor to the Graduate school to count towards an advanced degree under certain circumstances. These courses are limited to a maximum of nine (9) semester hours in which the grade of B or higher has been earned within the time limits and other restrictions detailed in this Graduate Studies catalog.
