Who’s eligible to join?

To be a member, you must meet the following minimum requirements:

  1. All candidates submit an unofficial transcript or copy of a KDP-written invitation when applying.
  2. Degree-seeking students will be enrolled in or have already completed 6 hours of education courses; have a minimum collegiate GPA of 3.0 (or the equivalent of 3.0 on a 4.0 grading scale if a different system is used by the institution).
  3. Support KDP’s mission, vision, and values.
  4. Alternative Certification candidates with a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degree will be enrolled in or have already completed 6 hours of education courses and support KDP’s mission, vision, and values. There is no GPA requirement for someone who is pursuing teaching credentials and has earned a baccalaureate degree.
  5. Teachers who are in-service professionals shall submit proof of an undergraduate degree via an unofficial transcript. If the teacher is licensed and teaching and has a baccalaureate degree, then there is no GPA requirement—only proof of a degree, the teacher’s current position title, and school name and district where they are teaching.
