Teacher candidates who complete an approved teacher certification program at GCSU may request recommendation to the Georgia Professional Standards Commission for certification. Request for certification through GCSU must be made within one year of graduation. The initial certificate awarded by the Professional Standards Commission is the Professional Teaching Certificate. Teacher candidates applying for initial certification must:

  1. Have an overall 2.50 GPA.
  2. Complete a certification program of choice at GCSU.
  3. Pass the appropriate GACE Content Assessment(s) tests for the certification area sought.
  4. Complete the PSC certification application and file the completed form with all the necessary documentation intact with the GCSU COE Certification Officer (Kilpatrick Hall, Room 220D).

All teacher certification programs are subject to change in response to new requirements from the Georgia Professional Standards Commission. Teacher candidates will be given appropriate notice of changes, and teacher education programs will be modified or adapted to meet the required change.
