Obtaining a teaching license is your path to teaching STEM subjects in middle and high school classrooms! CU Teach Engineering students must meet requirements for the Undergraduate Teacher Licensure program through CU Boulder’s School of Education. To be considered for admission to the Undergraduate Teacher Licensure program, applicants must meet the following:

  • Minimum 2.75 cumulative GPA (engineering students may be provisionally admitted with a lower GPA).
  • Minimum 2.75 GPA in e+ Emphasis and e+ Concentration courses.
  • At least 26 hours of college coursework completed or in progress.
  • Within the past five years, at least 25 hours of interaction with children ages 12-18, excluding any form of high school peer counseling, babysitting (or serving as a nanny) and any other experience with youth that is supervised by a relative or friend. The Step 1 and Step 2 courses count for this experience!
  • Demonstration of basic math and verbal skills (mandated by the State of Colorado). Students may complete an appropriate course in mathematics and composition with a grade of B- or better, or submit an approved standardized test score.

Admission to the Undergraduate Teacher Licensure program through CU Boulder’s School of Education is competitive; satisfying the minimum criteria does not guarantee acceptance.
