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 24 college credits and meeting departmental entrance requirements

All early childhood/childhood education B-6 students also have an academic concentration, or major.  Faculty from the academic major department advise students on coursework in that discipline.

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