  • Unofficial Transcripts or Degree Works worksheet, showing that all major/minor requirements will be met, before Residency begins.

You must also pass a Praxis II or PLACE exam for your content area. Send test scores to Western (code 4946) by May 16, 2015.

More about the PLACE and Praxis II tests

The Colorado Department of Education only accepts content knowledge tests administered by PLACE or Praxis II. PLACE was designed and developed for Colorado, whereas Praxis II is a nationwide test.

Please check that the test for which you are registering is approved by the State of Colorado and accepted for the endorsement that you are seeking.
