Tips for completing your application

  • Read all directions carefully before beginning the online application
  • You only need to submit the MN verification of program completion to me to complete.  I will return this to you to submit with the rest of the required materials.
  • Minnesota requires all supplemental materials to be submitted in a single packet
  • Make a copy for the verification for your records
  • You can e-mail me the verification form as a .pdf attachment.  I will return it to you through the US Postal Service
  • With your verification we will include a letter which will provide Minnesota with your Praxis I® testing information.  DO NOT OPEN THIS LETTER!  My signature will be across the envelope to show I sealed it.
