Questions about MTELs or MTEL Prep?


Wheelock College offers  prep sessions to support the efforts of our students as they prepare to pass the MTEL exams. The sessions are free to current Wheelock students. They are also available to non-Wheelock students for a small fee.

Guide to MTEL Prep Courses

We understand how confusing it can be to determine which prep course(s) you should take, so we created the following guide to help you. It explains which course you should take to prepare for each MTEL.

Once you determine which MTEL prep course(s) you wish to take, please make a note of the course number(s).

Current Wheelock students can search for and register for available prep courses in the student portal.

Non-Wheelock students should register using the forms on the MTEL Prep Registration web page.

See the currently available MTEL Prep Courses on the MTEL Prep Registration Web Page.
