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 Office of Education Advising is a resource for college navigation and academic program planning for students interested in education. The office also oversees transfer credit evaluation for education courses, and is a source of information about field experiences and certification requirements.
