Transition to Teaching (T2T) programs are based on the premise that the candidate already has content knowledge in the licensing area. Each accredited education institution is required to offer or be in collaboration with other institutions to offer a Transition to Teaching program. The programs consist of 18 hours of coursework for secondary education and 24 hours for elementary education. No education courses are required as prerequisites for admission.

Candidates applying for admission to a T2T program are no longer required to pass the Indiana CORE assessment (content test) prior to program admission unless using the “bachelor’s and passing the test” T2T admission option.
