Admission to the teacher education program is a sequential process and you will have strong support every step of the way. Experienced advisors, staff and faculty are always available to provide guidance and direction. Admission to the program is competitive and not guaranteed, but with hard work and using the resources we provide, you can put yourself in a position to succeed.
Read on for the details on how to apply to one of the three program options within the Department of Education Studies. The application process for these programs is segmented into separate gates. This page will cover the application process up to gate 1. The three programs are:
Please note that admission into one of these programs also includes admission into the teacher education program.
Select which program you intend to participate in at the beginning of your first semester. You must also select which major you want to pursue as a subject area of focus. Elementary education pre-program students should complete ES 203, and secondary education pre-program students should complete ES 212 during the second semester of their first year. Both classes require prerequisites which are listed below.
Second year students who are pursuing any of the three program options must file a formal application. Elementary education applicants who are accepted into the program will generally start their teaching methods courses the next year. Secondary education applicants will generally start the next semester. The application deadlines for all three programs is October 1st and March 1st. If either of these dates falls on a weekend the application deadline will be set on the preceding Friday before October 1 or March 1. Students should work with their advisors and apply as early as possible within the application window to avoid scheduling issues.
Each student is responsible for downloading the necessary forms for the application process.
