Students interested in the undergraduate Early Childhood & Childhood Education B-6 program are encouraged to meet with advisor Joanna Schroer by the end of their freshman year, or as soon as they know they want to enter the program, as it is highly structured and sequenced. A minimum overall GPA of 3.0 is required.
All Early Childhood & Childhood Education students also have an academic concentration, or major. Some concentrations have their own entrance requirements. Faculty from the concentration department advise students on coursework in that discipline.
The Early Childhood Education & Childhood Education Advising Office maintains records which include transfer credit evaluation, independent fieldwork documentation, and fingerprint clearance. The office is also a resource for fieldwork information, certification workshops and exams, and academic program planning.
