Students are encouraged to become familiar with the teacher education requirements by comparing their own transcripts to the published advising materials. Students can then talk with an advisor before applying to the program or they may wait until after their applications are processed. Students seeking teacher licensure in French, German, Japanese, Latin, Spanish or Music Education should see the designated advisor for that content area in addition to the School of Education advisor.
