Applicants Completing Alternate Route Programs to Add Endorsements

Wyoming does not accept alternate routes for initial licensure. To learn more about how to add an endorsement to a license through Wyoming's alternate route, visit the Professional Teaching Standards Board website.

Find your certification area below to determine which test(s) you need to take. For test prep materials, click the test title. Once you know which tests you should take, schedule your test.

Unless it’s specifically stated that a calculator is permitted or required for a particular test, you can’t use a calculator on any Praxis tests (see Calculator Use).
