All applicants seeking a teaching credential in the District of Columbia shall be required to present passing scores for an approved basic skills, subject content and pedagogy exam required for the credential being sought. For teaching subject areas where an applicable subject content exam has not been adopted, applicants must hold a completed degree with a major in that subject area. All applicants seeking a student/pupil service provider and/or school principal/assistant principal credential shall be required to present passing scores for the required subject content exam required for the credential being sought.
Out-of-state credential holders – who hold a full active credential in the appropriate subject area issued in a reciprocal state accepted by the District of Columbia, may submit their score report verifying scores for comparable exams passed in that state in lieu of the required DC exams.
