Programs and Degrees

SAT Requirements

Providence College is a test optional institution. However, due to state teacher certification regulations, completion of an education program requires passing a variety of standardized basic skills, teaching skills, and content knowledge tests at various points throughout the program. Therefore acceptance into Providence College is separate from acceptance into an education program.

Catholic and Dominican
