Special Admission Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer students with 48 or more earned credits must either provide evidence of passing the Praxis Core for Educators (PRAXIS) or Pre-service Academic Performance Assessment (PAPA), or exempt SAT/ACT scores for the basic skills assessment, before they are officially entered into the Education program at Seton Hill.


Students who meet either the SAT or ACT minimum score requirements are exempt from taking the PAPA or Praxis Core.

OLD SAT: No score on any section (math, verbal or writing) lower than 500.

NEW SAT: Reading 27, mathematics 26, and writing and language 28


ACT: Composite score of 23 along with a combined reading score of 22, writing score of 8 and a math score of 21.


If you have completed your basic skills requirement by taking the PRAXIS CORE or PAPA exam, please email Sherry Spataro,, with your name and the date you took the test. Contact your academic advisor if you need to change your major to the teacher certification track.
