It is possible to skip a term or two between courses if that works better than taking the courses back to back.
Will I receive a certificate document to include with my resume?
Upon completion of the four courses with a 3.0 GPA or higher and passing the Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators in Mathematics (5733) with a qualifying score of 150, each student is mailed a signed certificate with the University of Wisconsin-Stout official seal titled "Graduate Certificate for Math Specialist."
Praxis Test Centers and Dates
If you have previously completed Praxis (5732) or Praxis (5161/0061) or Praxis (5169/0069) or Praxis (5061) with a qualifying score of 150, you may submit that documentation and are not required to retake the test.
You may also request an official University of Wisconsin-Stout transcript documenting the ten graduate credits.
How will a graduate certificate help me?
- Add your certificate to your resume and LinkedIn profile
- Demonstrate you are acquiring new skills and knowledge
- Use your online portfolio to showcase your skills to employers
- Return later and apply the credits as electives in the Master of Science in Education graduate degree program
"... for students balancing the jobs they must have with the advanced education they desire – a situation faced by most students today – completing a certificate can be the most direct path to career success."
