* Disclosure of Arrest and Conviction is required for Teacher preparation programs: teacher preparation programs include all undergraduate programs except exercise science. For services and other information related to taking the General Knowledge Test check out the links in the Teacher Certification pages. It may take up to six weeks to receive the official score report after taking the test.

**Some programs are limited access and may have different admission restrictions. See your advisor for details. Some programs, such as Elementary Education, offer limited course selection during the spring and summer terms for those students who are admitted in the spring term. If attending full time is a requirement for you due to aid or housing, please contact Chelsea Kopkin at ckopkin@usf.edu, academic advisor in Student Academic Services, regarding how the Elementary Ed program is structured for spring versus fall admits.

Admission is based upon successful completion of classes currently in progress. The College of Education reserves the right to rescind admission for the upcoming term based upon unsuccessful completion of in-progress courses.

NOTE: Students are expected to validate their admission for the term for which they apply and are admitted by attending the new student College of Education orientation and enrolling in undergraduate College of Education upper-level coursework. Failure to do this will result in revocation of College of Education admission.
