SCHEDULE

The Relay M.A.T. is a 36 credit hour program. Relay’s academic calendar and program structure are designed to accommodate the demanding schedules of graduate students who hold full-time positions in schools. We deliver about 40% of the content online and 60% in person so that graduate students have flexibility to complete large portions of the coursework when it is most convenient for their schedules.

CLASS SCHEDULE

In addition to online coursework, teachers will attend regular in-person sessions, including:

  • A two-week summer session before the first year of the program;
  • A two-week summer session between the first and second years of the program;
  • Two weeknight sessions each month, for core teaching instruction; and
  • One Saturday session each month OR two weeknights each month, for instruction specific to grade levels and subjects.

Relay has three terms each year (summer, fall, and spring). 

RELAY DENVER ADMISSIONS & CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS

In addition to the standard M.A.T. admissions and certification requirements, participants in the Denver M.A.T. program must meet the following campus-specific admissions and licensure requirements.

The Relay Denver M.A.T. program provides a pathway for alternate route licensure. Eligible applicants who are not licensed as teachers in Colorado may receive a Colorado Initial Teaching License by completing this program and satisfying additional certification requirements. Graduate students pursuing alternate route certification complete the same coursework as those not pursuing licensure.

In order to seek certification at Relay Denver, the State of Colorado requires that you hold an undergraduate degree from a regionally accredited institution of higher education. Search your undergraduate institution in the College Source Online database to determine if it is regionally accredited. If it is not, contact denver@relay.edu for guidance.

Download the Colorado Licensure Highlights Guide for information about licensure requirements and a timeline of key milestones.

Please note that licensure steps occur prior to admission, during the program, and upon completion of the program. This information is important! Failure to pass licensure exams and meet other licensure criteria may result in loss of your teaching position and/or removal from the Denver M.A.T. program.
