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 Early Childhood/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.
