For students who took the NC Teacher Cadet course in high school, in order to obtain Teacher Cadet Elective Credit at WCU please follow the below process:
- Obtain a letter from the NC Teacher Cadet course teacher on high school letterhead stating the semester and year the course was taken and the grade earned (must be an "A" or "B").
- Send the above letter and a copy of the course portfolio (it will not be returned) to Teacher Recruitment, 91 Killian Building Lane, Rm 223, Western Carolina University, Cullowhee, NC 28723.
The portfolio will then be assessed and, if approved, will be forwarded to the Registrar's Office so that the student receives 3.0 hours of elective credit in the College of Education and Allied Professions.
It is imperative that the Office of Admission is informed (by checking the box for Teacher Cadet on the contact card or completing the appropriate section in cfnc.org) that a student is planning to request Teacher Cadet Elective Credit from WCU.
