Early Childhood, Elementary, & Special Education Majors

Students majoring in Early Childhood, Elementary, and Special Education programs are assigned to Peer Advising until they are admitted to the Professional Education Program or until they achieve Junior status, at that time they will be assigned a faculty adviser in the School of Education. Students should schedule an appointment with a peer adviser during the second and third months of each semester by signing up outside of 453 College of Professional Studies.

Secondary and K-12 Education Majors

Students seeking a Secondary or K-12 teaching license pursue a major in the subject area they wish to teach. The department of the major will assign an academic adviser. Students are required to see their major academic adviser every semester.

Prior to admission to the Professional Education Program, questions concerning teacher certification should be directed to an adviser in the School of Education Advising, Recruitment & Retention Office. Students will be assigned an additional adviser - an education faculty member - once they are admitted to the Professional Education Program.

Students should officially declare their intent to teach by scheduling a Teaching Intent Meeting as soon as they decide on teaching. During this meeting, students will receive information about state requirements, application requirements, and other important information regarding the Professional Education Program.
