Office of Educational Advisement

Childhood Education Academic Advising

The Childhood Education Academic Advising Office serves undergraduate students in the Early Childhood/Childhood Education B-6 program.  Students may enter the program after completing 30 college credits and meeting departmental entrance requirements. Once declared, students are assigned to Joanna Schroer, the Childhood Education professional advisor. They remain her advisees until senior year, when they are advised by Elementary Education teaching faculty. 

All early Childhood/Childhood Education B-6 students also have an academic major, or concentration.  Click here for a list of approved majors. Faculty from the academic major department advise students on major coursework.

The Childhood Education Academic Advising Office maintains advising records which include
transfer credit evaluation, pre-professional fieldwork documentation, and fingerprint clearance. The office is also a resource for fieldwork information, certification workshops and exams, and
childhood education program planning.
