(ex. TTU Learning Support Center, first floor of Matthews Hall). The 10 hours of tutoring MUST be completed BEFORE the student's last retesting attempt.
Two of the three sections of the Praxis I or Praxis Core must be successfully completed. The following score and GPA range(s) on the failed section of the Praxis tests are required for eligibility:
The student will also need to submit additional paperwork:
A decision will be made by the Praxis Waiver Sub-Committee (or their designee). If extenuating circumstances exist, a student may request a personal appearance before the Sub-Committee.
The decision of the Sub-Committee is final.
To set up a Praxis tutoring schedule here at TTU please contact the Academic Development Center at 931-372-3476. These services are free of charge.
Starting July 1, 2014, the Praxis Waiver process will be discontinued. No new request will be accepted starting on that date. Students who begin the process prior to July 1st will be allowed to complete their request.
