Answering your questions about the teacher licensure programs
Q: Will I practice teach?
Yes. All WGU Nevada teacher licensure programs include practice teaching in real classrooms. This is part of your Demonstration Teaching domain of study. This is obviously not an online portion of your degree program. Exactly how your practice teaching occurs will depend on the specific school district in which you teach. Speak to an Enrollment Counselor who can explain this in more detail.
Q: Is financial aid available?
Yes. As part of Western Governors University, WGU Nevada offers federal financial aid. Loans are available to most students, regardless of financial need. Grants that don’t require repayment are also available for those with financial need. You can check into your financial aid eligibility at any time during the complete the admissions application.
Q. How will I complete my degree?
As a WGU Nevada student, you take and complete assessments. You’ll prepare for your assessments by engaging various learning resources including textbooks, web tutorials, and courses. You will determine what learning resources are best for you in consultation with your mentor using your personalized Degree Plan.
Speak to an Enrollment Counselor who can explain this program in more depth.
Q: Can I accelerate my progress?
As a WGU Nevada student you progress through your program by passing assessments. In consultation with your mentor, you set the pace at which you prepare for and take the assessments. Consequently, some students with strong academic or career experience in the field are able to go faster than the standard rate of progress. However, doing so isn’t easy. Many of the assessments are quite challenging, and students sometimes overestimate the knowledge they possess when they enter a program. On the other hand, a highly motivated, self-disciplined individual is precisely the kind of student who does well at WGU Nevada.
