Admission to Educator Preparation Programs (EPP)


Specific Requirements for Pre-Admitted EPP Candidates

Newly enrolled students who enroll in the University to seek teaching degrees are considered “Pre-Admitted” to their educator preparation programs (EPP). To become full EPP candidates, enrollees meet prescribed criteria and competencies. These criteria (See links below) are ideally met during their first three semesters at the University. Completing these requirements in a timely manner will help candidates transition into programs, upper level education courses, observation, and classroom practicum.
