Testing Requirements by Track

We encourage you to start knocking out your teacher preparation tests as soon as possible. You will need a passing score on all of your required exams by the time you start the RTR program in May. These tests will enable you to become a licensed teacher in the Commonwealth of Virginia once you complete your residency program and graduate degree. Sometimes it takes a try or two to pass tests so give yourself plenty of elbow room to retake if necessary and plenty of time to prepare. Studying is key. You can do it : )
