Admission to the Teacher Education Program and to the Elementary or Middle Grades Education Majors
Admission to the University does not guarantee admission to Teacher Education with a major in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction.

The School of Education's Department of Curriculum and Instruction reserves the right to refuse admission where additional enrollments would threaten the academic quality of classes or programs. The size of each junior class coming into Elementary or Middle Grades Education is determined by the availability of clinical faculty for student practicum and student teaching experiences. Therefore, it may not be possible to assure space for each student who meets the quantitative criteria for admission to the major as specified above. Interviews and/or other qualitative criteria will be implemented in such instances.

In addition to admission to teacher education (see Teacher Education), a student who seeks admission to the Elementary or Middle Grades Education major is expected to achieve:
1. A minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.75;
2. A grade of C or better in CUI 250;
3. Completion of all courses needed to fulfill the General Education Requirements; and
4. Satisfactory scores on the Pre-Professional Skills Test (PPST).

Admission to Student Teaching
Eligibility to enter student teaching requires maintaining a grade point average of 2.75 or better after being admitted to the major, and achieving a grade of "C" or better in each professional course. After admission to the major, if a student fails to maintain a grade point average of 2.75, the student has one semester to improve his/her grade point average. If a student receives a "D" or "F" in a professional course, the student is eligible to retake the course at its next offering.
