You must be accepted to the University of San Francisco before you can submit an application for the Teacher Preparation Programs.


  • Students must be enrolled at USF, ideally as freshmen or transfers with less than junior standing.
  • Prospective students must have a 3.0 cumulative high school grade point average (GPA), in addition to meeting USF’s admission requirements. Prospective transfers and current USF students must have an overall 3.0 college GPA.
  • Students must also complete the program application.
  • Students may also gauge their interest before applying to the program by enrolling in Intro to the Teaching Profession (INTD 110). Most students would then be eligible to apply the following semester.
