All certification programs require a minimum 3.0 GPA at completion of the program and graduation in order to receive certification.

Please refer to this handbook for questions regarding the education program at Lycoming College. Teacher certification through the Lycoming College Department of Education is designed to meet the licensure requirements of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
