Bemidji State University’s FasTrack PostBac Secondary Initiative is a hybrid/online cohort program for individuals looking to become licensed in secondary education.  Schools are desperate for teachers who can develop and deliver online curriculum. You will be qualified when you have completed the FasTrack program in the following areas:

** If you already hold a teaching license, The FasTrack PostBac Initiative is not a fit for you.

Those hoping to enroll in the FasTrack PostBac Secondary Initiative must have previously earned a Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts, Master of Business Administration, Master of Science, Master of Fine Arts, Master of Arts or Doctor of Philosophy (or other) degree.

FasTrack PostBac is a hybrid/online cohort initiative (face-to-face and online) requiring only THREE Face-to-Face meetings (in the Twin Cities) per year.

To view the possible alignment of your courses with BSU courses required in the content area in which you seek licensure, click here: courses in your content area to compare with your transcripts.  You must have a 2.5 GPA in both Content and Education courses to qualify for FasTrack PostBac.

Upon full acceptance and successful completion of all requirements, coursework, and student teaching, Bemidji State University will recommend for licensure.  There is no portfolio development.
