Upon completion of ALL certification requirements*, the teacher certification coordinator (Gail Habbersett) will provide a letter to each
certification applicant who has applied online through the TIMS at the PDE. This letter states that the student has successfully passed all
required Pennsylvania tests and has completed a PA state-approved certification program at WCU. Further it states that WCU has affirmed and
recommended this candidate in the TIMS at the PDE for the credential requested.
This is "THE LETTER" to which many school districts refer. It will be mailed only after formal grades are posted and degrees are
conferred (if applicable).
- Completion of all PA tests required by your subject area
- Graduation clearance/program completion by major department and the registrar’s office
