Educator Preparation Program Application System
The Educator Preparation Program Application System is the online reporting system used by teacher preparation providers in Minnesota. Unit leaders should submit their request for user access forms (below) to BOT staff if they have not done so already. The first time any user attempts to log in to the system, they will be asked to request access through MDE's security system and to identify with a particular institution or organization. BOT staff will approve access and user permissions based on the information that was submitted by unit leaders.
The EPPAS system plays a critical role in meeting the reporting requirements of the Board of Teaching and in assisting individual programs with the maintenance of program data over time. For questions, please contact Alex Liuzzi, Teacher Education Specialist, 651-582-8885.
