About the Program

The Alternative Route to Licensure (ARL) teacher certification program at GBC enables students who have completed an undergraduate degree in a field other than elementary education to become eligible for licensure to teach in Nevada.

In order to apply to the program, a student must have already completed a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution.

The Teacher Education Program Handbook includes program application forms. It also includes expectations by which each student will be evaluated once admitted to the program. To complete the program as efficiently as possible, it is imperative that students seek advising from education department personnel upon acceptance into the program.

To register for the Praxis exams, please contact Ping Wang at 753-2144, she will assist you with dates and times, etc.
