Please note: You must attend a general information session before making an appointment to meet with an adviser.

Although an adviser will be happy to meet with you (after you have attended a general session), you need not attend an information session or meet with an adviser before applying to a program.

If you already hold initial certification at the secondary level, please see information about our M.S. Ed. program on this page or call our departmental office at 845-257-2850.
