A conferred undergraduate degree is required by the start of our Summer Institute (June 2018). You must have a Bachelor's Degree, in any subject, to be eligible to begin the Urban Teachers program.
Urban Teachers seeks a 3.0 GPA from one’s undergraduate institution (the school that will/did confer your degree). There are several exceptions to the GPA requirement. If your GPA is below a 3.0, don't panic! Urban Teachers accepts a GPA of 2.75-2.99 for highly qualified applicants. For instance, applicants with extensive work with children, STEM majors (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) or experience working in a STEM environment may still be accepted into our program. In addition, Urban Teachers occasionally accepts an applicant who is currently employed as a paraprofessional by one of our school partners and is recommended by them, even if their GPA is below the 3.0 mark. If you are unsure if you are eligible, please contact Admissions at email@example.com.
Eligibility is based on the applicant’s undergraduate institution GPA ONLY; other higher education GPAs (i.e. graduate school) are NOT used to determine eligibility.
