enrolling in the college of education: next steps

After being admitted to the College of Education, 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.

Note: Admission to the College of Education 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.
