GPA Sheet—Physical Education
Please see your Physical Education advisor (Dr. Julene Ensign) each semester to ensure smooth processing through the program.
Students being certified to teach in Missouri must have a 2.75 or higher GPA overall, a 3.0 GPA or higher in their content area, and a 3.0 GPA or higher in professional classes (mostly education classes). This GPA sheet was crafted to help students keep track of these three GPA calculations, as well as to aid with advisement and enrollment. If students have any questions about their GPA, they should meet with their specialty area advisor.Download GPA Sheet (Excel file)
