Q: How can I waive the exams?

A:  An applicant can waive the Subject Knowledge exam if they have a Master’s degree in that subject area posted on an official transcript issued from an accredited college or university. However, applicants who have earned a Master’s in Elementary Education OR a Master’s in Early Childhood Education are NOT eligible to waive the corresponding Subject Knowledge exam

The Professional Knowledge exam requirement may be waived if the applicant has three years of full time teaching experience in the certificate area.  Submit the “Verification of PreK-12 Teaching Experience” form signed by a personnel director or superintendent to document teaching experience.
