Praxis Core Requirements

Praxis I has been replaced with the Praxis Core test.

Students must complete the Praxis Core exam. The minimum scores for each section are 150 Math, 156 Reading, and 162 Writing. Praxis Core is not required if a minimum ACT score of 22 or SAT score of 1020 has been earned. Scores must be on the student’s official record.

Praxis Core must be completed before receiving the AST degree.

For those students who have already begun to complete the testing requirements, a combination of the two tests (Praxis I and Core) will be accepted for a limited time. The grace period is as follows:
