Grade of C- or Better in All Content & Professional Education Coursework (C- Rule)*


State law requires that all coursework in the content and professional education areas have grades of C- or higher.  Coursework with a grade lower than C- cannot be used to meet licensure requirements. This applies to subsequent endorsements and/or approvals as well.  For graduate students, this includes undergraduate courses used toward meeting program requirements.

* Beginning in Fall 2022, "CR" grades can no longer be accepted for licensure, endorsement, or approval requirements.
