School of Education

If you are transferring from another college or university or are a career changer and interested in becoming certified to teach, we recommend completing a transcript evaluation (Sorry, currently unavailable as we are going through transition for Fall 2017 pending final state approvals). Once we determine how your coursework will transfer and meet program requirements, we will call you to set up an appointment with an academic advisor.
