 Licensure Exam Scores
  • Submit original or legible, unaltered copy of your qualifying test score with your application paperwork to the CEAP licensure specialist.  Even though you may have indicated WCU as a recipient of your score,  it will expedite the process if you print a legible copy from your ETS profile and fax, mail, or email your test score with your application materials.  If you still need to take the Praxis II, testing and registration information can be found through Educational Testing Service by selecting North Carolina under State Testing Requirements.  Contact the CEAP licensure specialist if you have questions. 
  • The School Social Worker license currently has no Praxis II test licensure requirement.
