Admission to Licensure Program

The Augsburg University Education Department requires prospective P-12 teacher candidates to apply to the licensure program.  This process includes:

  • completing an application in an online system known as Tk20,
  • taking required NES licensure exams in reading, writing, and mathematics,
  • obtaining the recommendation of an Augsburg faculty member,
  • meeting with a faculty advisor in the Education Department.

Acceptance to the program is contingent on meeting the criteria outlined in the document below. Begin the admission process by requesting an appointment to meet with your education advisor. If you have not been assigned an education advisor you can request one through Cheryl Sticha <sticha@augsburg.edu> or 612-330-1130).  During this time education advisors go over licensure program requirements and courses.

Students seeking licensure in secondary education (As well as art, music, physical education, and health) also need to meet with an advisor in the content area department.  Please print out and bring this form with you when you meet with your content area advisor.  The completed form must be submitted before your application can be approved.  If you need help finding a content area advisor, please contact Cheryl Sticha (sticha@augsburg.edu).
