We recommend that students take their subject tests when they have completed about 90% of the coursework required for that subject. For most, that is January prior to the Internship Year. July is the last date to pass the subject area tests before the internship. At a minimum, secondary education students must pass the MTTC corresponding to their teaching major, and elementary students (including Special Education and Child Development students) must pass the Elementary Education MTTC (103) before the internship. Special Education majors should wait until the internship to take their Special Education endorsement test (Learning Disabilities).
