The purpose of this research was to determine whether particular biographic and academic characteristics would predict whether an applicant would matriculate into and successfully complete an online secondary teacher certification program. Results of statistical analyses conducted on 170 applicants over the past three years affirm the importance of the applicant's performance on the state content licensure examination. Other academic variables and biographic variables were found not to influence success in completing this secondary teacher certification program. (Contains 7 tables.)
