Degree students must complete all course work with a grade of “C” or better, obtain a minimum 2.75 GPA, submit a professional portfolio, and earn a passing score on a basic skills test of high school level reading, writing, and math (PRAXIS I, SAT, ACT, or GRE).

* The Introduction to Special Education course required by Hagerstown Community College is a necessary requirement for the College’s A.A.T. Degree in Elementary/Generic Special Education Pre-K-12 Degree, but is not sufficient to meet all special education or inclusion course requirements for four-year teacher education programs. Students may be required to take additional special education or inclusion courses as a part of the requirements for a baccalaureate degree and teacher education certification at four-year institutions.

Students who have been convicted of child abuse, sexual abuse of a minor, or crimes of violence are precluded from employment in the field of teaching. Please discuss concerns with your advisor.
