Accelerated Teacher Preparation Application

Individuals who have earned a bachelor's degree and want to teach in Pennsylvania schools may engage in an approved program of study to attain eligibility to be recommended for Pennsylvania Department of Education teacher certification.

The approved program of study (a configuration of courses based on the transcript review) must meet Pennsylvania’s competency requirements for teachers. Keystone does not issue a certificate; however, students who meet the requirements can be recommended for PDE certification. 

Students who are interested in applying for these programs should complete this application and select the desired teacher preparation program (non-degree) from the drop-down menu within the application. Official college transcripts from all schools attended must also be submitted to the Keystone College Office of Admissions.
