All students seeking teacher, student services, or administrative certifications must earn a passing score on the appropriate content assessment. The MoCA must be attempted prior to student teaching (some programs require that it be passed prior to student teaching).

Students who meet certain criteria are eligible for a partial fee waiver when registering for the MEGA Assessments (MoGEA & MoCAs). For more information, visit the MoGEA and MoCA Fee Waiver website.
