Transfer & Reentry Students: We would be happy to meet with Transfer or Reentry students, once they follow the directions below:
The School of Education has a special section of our web site dedicated to transfer and reentry students. We would suggest starting there, and following the directions carefully, as soon as possible. The section on “Preparing to Transfer” is very important as that is what you will need to do to help determine how long it will take to pursue your teaching license.  Each step will walk you through important information on our program.  These sections will direct you to such things as getting a credit evaluation, requirements to apply to our program, enrollment cap policies, curriculum planning sheets, etc.  Once you have received your “credit evaluation,” you are encouraged to call and make an appointment to meet with an advisor in the School of Education. 

NOTES:  
  1. It is important to make sure we offer the teaching major you are looking for. 
  2. You must be admitted to our program a semester prior to starting the upper-level  education course work.
  3. If you are pursuing a secondary or K-12 teaching license in a specific subject, we recommend meeting with the department of the major as well.
 

 
Please call the School of Education Advising Office if you have any questions.  Our phone number is (715) 346-2040.
