Certification Preparation Programs
Pennsylvania has 93 colleges and universities that offer teacher education programs approved by the Department of Education.  Students who secure the recommendation for certification by the college or university have met: all requirements of the approved preparation program, the qualifying scores on the required tests and other requirements established by the State Board of Education. 
 
The program approval process is based upon general and subject-specific guidelines, rather than a minimum number of credits, set by the Department of Education and implemented by the preparing institution.  This section provides information on the approved programs at the Pennsylvania colleges and universities as well as the program guidelines established by the Department.
