Urban Teachers can only accept applicants who are currently authorized to work in the United States and possess a ten-year visa or Permanent Resident Card (Green Card). We are unable to sponsor any type of employment or education Visa. Our application is open to U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents only.
U.S. citizens and permanent residents who studied at universities abroad may apply to our program. Applicants with a degree from a foreign university will be required to have their transcript evaluated and translated into English by a recognized agency either the World Education Services (wes.org) or the Education Credential Evaluators (ece.org) before being considered. This transcript evaluation would require a course-by-course evaluation rather than a general degree comparison. For questions, contact email@example.com.
English as a Second Language
For applicants whose native language is not English, an official copy of your score report from the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) may be required. In order to ensure an applicant’s ability to participate successfully in Urban Teachers’ curriculum, minimum score requirements must be met for admission.
The required minimum for the TOEFL test is as follows: 600 (paper-based) or 100 (internet-based). (If you received your undergraduate degree from a college or university in the U.S. or U.S. Territory where the coursework was taught in English, this condition may be waived.)
For Dallas, candidates need to earn the following minimum scaled scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language internet-Based Test (TOEFL iBT):
- Speaking: 24
- Listening: 22
- Reading: 22
- Writing: 21
