The Administrative Certification program is designed to prepare principals for grades PK–12. For admission to the program, an applicant must meet the departmental requirements outlined in the Admission section of this catalog and must hold a valid instructional or educational specialist certificate.
Note: Students must pass the requisite Praxis examinations, which are mandated by PDE in addition to the above requirements. Students must have at least three years of appropriate certificated experience in basic education to achieve a Commonwealth of Pennsylvania administrative certificate.
Students in the Administrative Certification without a Master’s degree program must have a practicum site visit by a site supervisor of the University of Scranton. Site visits must be completed prior to the student completing their program and/or degree conferral.
