There are two admission periods each year, in January and in September.
Deadlines for applying are January 15 and September 15.
Applications are available on the Department of Education homepage during the admission period.
At the time of applying, the student must have formulated a reasonably firm academic plan. The choice of certificate level (elementary/secondary) should be firm, major(s) and minor(s) should be identified, and a probable completion date should be projected.
Students apply and are accepted to the Teacher Certification Program one semester prior to taking EDS 360 and courses requiring EDS 360 as a pre- or co-requisite. For example, a student must be admitted to a certificate program before registering to take EDE 300 or EDS 300, EDE/EDS 302, and EDS 360 the following semester.
Students not admitted to a teacher certificate program may enroll in education courses which do not have EDE 300 or EDS 300, EDE/EDS 302, EDS 360 as prerequisites. Admission is selective. Enrollment decisions will be based upon student qualifications as well as faculty and program resources.
